In episode 7 of the Persevere Podcast, Patty talks with Kevin Houlihan, President, and CEO of ImageMover, about the critical need for a product manager within your organization. 


Kevin is a dynamic, data-driven sales and product leader with a passion for building true partnerships, strong products, and memorable customer experiences. He has a proven track record in sales, engineering, and product management. He can move from strategy to execution while creating alignment between stakeholders from the C-Suite to the front line. 
Key takeaways:

  • PMs must explain the same message differently to improve communication across the organization
  • PMs need to connect with all stakeholders and personality types
  • Why it is important to hire a PM
  • How to use time optimization to ensure the track you lay down is the right track to be on
  • When hiring a PM, consider the following: 
    1. Someone who can understand the product better than anyone
    2. Someone who is a good listener
    3. Someone who is not afraid to interact with customers
    4. Someone who continually asks questions
