Pressman is co-founder, former President, and a current board member of Medallia, which is a public enterprise SaaS company that pioneered Experience Management and is the leader in helping organizations capture and act on customer feedback.  

OpenGov — which is on a mission to power more effective and accountable government — serves over 1,000 agencies across the U.S. The OpenGov ERP Cloud was built exclusively for the unique budgeting, financial management, and citizen services needs of the public sector.

At Medallia, Pressman built and ran many key functions from Marketing and Sales to HR and Talent Acquisition. Since being founded, Medallia has grown to 1,500 employees and over $400 million in annual revenue and trades on the Nasdaq exchange (MDLA).

Before founding Medallia, Pressman served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Honduras, an Aide on Capitol Hill, a consultant for BCG, and an Associate at Goldman Sachs.  And she holds an undergraduate degree in History from Harvard and an MBA from Stanford.

With the appointment of Pressman, OpenGov’s board now includes Chairman Joe Lonsdale, Founding Partner of 8VC and Co-Founder of Palantir; John Chambers, Founder and CEO of JC2 Ventures and Former Executive Chairman and CEO of Cisco; Marc Andreessen, Co-Founder and General Partner of Andreessen Horowitz; Katherine August-deWilde, Vice Chair of First Republic Bank; and Zac Bookman, CEO and Co-Founder of OpenGov.
