We started The HBS Blog to bring you valuable and interesting content that empowers you on your entrepreneurial journey. Today, we are pleased to announce that we have three new contributors that will be writing fantastic articles full of informative topics. Check out their bios below and keep an eye out for their upcoming posts.
Gregg Schoenberg is a San Francisco-based finance professional who is just as passionate about well-crafted prose as he is about global economic affairs. He has 18 years of experience trading equity and derivatives for some of the world's largest asset managers, but away from the office he prefers to support local businesses and entrepreneurs. Through his writing for The HBS Blog, Gregg hopes to give small-business owners a better understanding of fundamentals and current affairs in economics and finance and how they affect our daily lives. Gregg has a BA in Business Economics from the University of California, Santa Barbara, is happily married to a dancer/filmmaker and is eagerly awaiting the birth of their daughter.
Matt Cholerton is a Human Resources professional based in New York City. Matt currently oversees all things HR (among other things) at a VC backed, hi-tech startup in NYC and occasionally details his thoughts about how we can use HR to propel the organization forward on his own blog EveryOneHatesHR.com. Previously, he spent several years at a small consulting firm managing HR projects across a wide range of industries. His work there included implementing effective performance management systems, creating job specs and organizational structure, clarifying expectations, increasing productivity, implementing compensation strategies, and increasing workplace satisfaction. Matt holds a Master’s Degree in Communication, Culture & Technology from Georgetown University, with a concentration in Japanese and Business Communications. Matt is a music enthusiast, enjoys cooking, traveling, reading, and spending time with his three kids (who have significantly reduced any time cooking, traveling and reading).
