Extract from Colleen Haikes’s article “Q&A With Rich Liu, Everlaw’s New CRO”
This week, we’re welcoming Rich Liu as Everlaw’s first Chief Revenue Officer. Rich joins us from a long and varied career, including building global business organizations at TripActions, MuleSoft and Meta.
At Everlaw, Rich will lead the go-to-market organization, ensuring our sales, customer experience and business development teams are tightly aligned in building towards our mission of illuminating the truth in the practice of law. We recently sat down to talk about his approach to responsible hypergrowth, why Everlaw’s values resonate with him, and his career aspirations as a kid.
Let’s start at the beginning… As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
One of my earliest memories was wanting to be a garbage man. I loved watching the truck come by every Friday at 6 am and I was enamored with the mechanical workings of this machine. It was back-breaking work, and I had (and still have) so much respect for those folks. They did this grueling job every day and still took time to smile and wave to the kid in the window.
Later, I wanted to be a fighter pilot and a Formula One driver… Clearly, that didn’t happen!
