Cody and I landed in partnerships through different journeys - Kenny from chapters in customer success, engineering, and product, and Cody from sales and sales leadership. Ultimately,
we both fell in love with the idea that partnerships is the rising tide that raises all boats.
Partner Fleet’s goal is to provide the tools Partnership Teams need to build their fleet and get on the rising tide.
Kenny started in technical services at BigMachines before its sale to Oracle in 2013. He then joined G2.com as the 10th employee, where he built G2’s API framework and integration partnerships. At Daxko, Kenny built and managed the Technology Partner Program. After running into the same pain points at multiple companies, Kenny started Partner Fleet to solve them once and for all.
Cody was the Sales Director at Zen Planner, which sold successfully to Daxko in 2017. At Daxko, Cody built the referral partner program and launched partnerships with the industry’s biggest brands, including CrossFit, Yoga Alliance, and KidStrong. Eventually, Cody took responsibility over all partnership programs across Daxko’s 10 brands. In 2021, Daxko sold successfully to private equity.
