Tristram Hewitt

Experienced Operations and Risk Leader

I led operations at both Turo and Outschool during hyper growth. In doing this work, I've developed industry expertise in a few areas: consumer, marketplaces, education, and mobility. I've also set-up and run most non product/engineering functions in high growth start-ups, including customer experience functions, company planning, international growth, performance marketing, insurance, trust and safety and risk.
