Let's Share

Welcome, Richard, Luke, & Syed

Molecule is growing! So far this year, we have added to our dev, customer success, and sales teams. We've done a quick Q&A with our additions to the sales team so you can get to know Richard Reedstrom, Luke 'Hawaiian-shirt' Kremer, and Syed Sohaib better. Stay tuned to meet the other new faces that have joined Molecule.

Richard Reedstrom

1.  Let’s start at the beginning. Where did you grow up? What led you to a career in sales?

I grew up here in Houston. I'm passionate about improving people's lives, and I've found that this bonds incredibly well with sales. Every day I help people end frustrating battles with old systems and methods by providing real solutions. I get to give people back hours of their lives. For me, it comes down to figuring out how we can make our customers' lives better.

2.  Why did you decide to join Molecule?

When I first heard about Molecule, it looked like an interesting company with a ton of potential. I had always wanted to work with a genuinely innovative/disruptive technology, and the more I found out about Molecule, the more I fell in love. The underlying technology, the company values, and the team culture resonated with me one hundred percent. I'm thrilled to be a part of such an awesome group of people doing incredible things.

3.  What is something that you’ve already learned about the industry or company that has surprised you?

Not every solution that claims to be cloud-based actually is a true cloud-based (multi-tenant) solution.

4.  For fun, what are your top three favorite apps?

1 Second Everyday, Tidal, and Audible.

5.  Since you’re in a sales position, let’s ask the obvious: what’s the most compelling reason why someone should want to buy Molecule?

Everything just works. We believe you shouldn’t have to fight with your software. Instead, Molecule works in harmony with you and your process.

Luke Kremer

1. Let’s start at the beginning. Where did you grow up? What led you to a career in sales?

I grew up in Papillion, a suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. I enjoy the relationship building and challenges that a sales person faces.

2. What is something that you’ve already learned about the industry or company that has surprised you?

I've been fascinated by renewable energy credit trading.

3. One of the things Molecule prides itself on is the time savings our software gives customers. More than one person has said that we’ve saved them two hours each day. If you were given two extra hours each day, how would you choose to spend them?

I’d have a tee time set two hours earlier each day; I could probably get a full 18 in before 7 pm.

4. For fun, what are your top three favorite apps?

Snapchat, Yelp, and Instagram.

5. Since you’re in a sales position, let’s ask the obvious: what’s the most compelling reason why someone should want to buy Molecule?

Molecule is future-proof software that looks and performs like it was made in 2019. We provide world-class service, free upgrades, and no extra implementation fees.

Syed Sohaib

1.  Let’s start at the beginning. Where did you grow up? What led you to a career in sales?

I grew up in Karachi, Pakistan. We moved to Stamford, Connecticut when I was in the middle of high school, which kickstarted my American dream. I graduated from the University of Connecticut (UConn) with an International Business Management degree and a focus in Finance. I took a marketing course titled ‘Professional Selling,’ and the final was to pitch a mock product and replace the incumbent provider. After the presentation my professor asked why I was not a marketing/sales major. According to him, I had a natural ability to be successful in a professional sales role. Long story short, I had an opportunity to join the sales team at ThomsonReuters, selling data solutions. I truly enjoyed the experience and challenge of bringing the right solutions to our clients/prospects. Ever since then I have been in sales and business development, and I enjoy every bit of it. Well, perhaps not CRMs!

2.  Why did you decide to join Molecule?

After trying my luck in different industries after ThomsonReuters, I wanted to get back into the financial services technology space. Molecule's solution "wow-ed" and made me excited about bringing it to market. For companies that have a need and utilize old technology for calculating P&L, position, and risk, Molecule is a game changer both from the ease of use and time-saving perspective.

3.  What is something that you’ve already learned about the industry or company that has surprised you?

The deep dive into the power market made me realize how challenging it is to learn, trade, and deal in this space.

4.  One of the things Molecule prides itself on is the time savings our software gives customers. More than one person has said that we’ve saved them two hours each day. If you were given two extra hours each day, how would you choose to spend them?

Spend more time with my family, learn a new language, restore and upgrade a Range Rover Defender 110, and go off the grid for a bit.

5.  For fun, what are your top three favorite apps?

I like puzzles, so Progress & Super Sharp. Proshot for some light photography and Flipboard to stay updated on tech, sports, travel, and autos, etc.

We are not finished either. Personally, I'm always recruiting for the sales team. Word on the wire is that we just hired a new developer in Spain! If you like what you have seen of Molecule so far, hit us up. We are always in the market for the best talent.
