About Brandon Chu

📖 Summary

I'm a rehabilitated career switcher. What feels like a lifetime ago, I was a CPA doing financial modelling at Kraft Foods, where I had a lucrative but altogether predictable career. Seeking a challenge, I quit and co-founded a tech startup, Tunezy, which kicked off the exponential learning curve of which I never want to leave. In 2013 Tunezy was acquired, the team split up and went their ways, and I ended up working in multiple product management roles of increasing scope at FreshBooks, where I'm now a Director of Product. From figuring out how much cheese Tim Horton's would buy next month, to figuring out how to build a creative culture, set the strategy for, and nurture the four product teams I lead now, it's been quite a ride.
