SourceScrub Adds Technology Veteran Steve Norall to Board of Directors
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, April 29, 2020 – SourceScrub LLC, an information services platform for the financial services industry, is excited to announce that Steve Norall, CEO of Vocal Video, has joined their Board of Directors.
Norall brings more than 25 years of software operating experience as a serial entrepreneur and was the former Chief Product Officer at SurveyMonkey, Inc. He has built and led high performance teams across sales, marketing, customer success, product and engineering. He founded TechValidate Software, Inc. in 2007 and grew it profitably until 2015 when it was acquired by SurveyMonkey. Currently, he is the CEO and founder of Vocal Video, Inc., a software company that helps marketers and small businesses create compelling video testimonials.
SourceScrub was founded by Tyler Fair and Prescott Nasser in 2015 to help investment professionals source, qualify, and track companies using a database of private business information.
“From my own experiences as a founder, I recognize how difficult it is to build a fast-growing business like SourceScrub. Tyler and Prescott have built something very special,” says Norall. “I’m thrilled to partner with them and the entire SourceScrub team to help the company achieve its aggressive growth plans in expanding its footprint in the financial services industry.”
“Steve’s experience with TechValidate as a bootstrapped business, followed by his tenure at SurveyMonkey, allows him to bring a unique perspective to our business. We’re growing fast and our market is dynamic, so having someone with Steve’s experience is a huge win for the company.” says SourceScrub CEO, Tyler Fair.
In November of 2019, SourceScrub announced that it had received a growth equity investment from Mainsail Partners, a San Francisco-based growth equity firm. “We have known Steve for a long time and have tremendous respect for his experience as a successful founder and technology leader,” says Gavin Turner, Managing Partner at Mainsail Partners. “We welcome Steve to the SourceScrub team and are excited to have him join our Mainsail family.”
