Labcorp Speaker Series Proudly Presents Trisha Price of Pendo

Please join us on January 31st at 6:30 p.m. in room 1231 in Engineering Building 2 as we kick off the Spring 2023 Labcorp “Leadership in Technology” Speakers Series


Our special guest speaker will be Trisha Price, Chief Product Officer at Pendo.  The topic of Price’s talk is “Leveraging Your Technical Degree on the Path to the C-Suite.”


Price is chief product officer at Pendo, a company that provides a platform that makes software better. Prior to joining Pendo, she served as chief innovation officer at nCino, where she drove new product strategy and ensured the alignment of nCino’s technology vision and business strategy. Price initially joined nCino as chief product officer, and played a pivotal role in the growth, development and ongoing innovation of the nCino Bank Operating System®. Prior to that, she spent nearly 20 years working in financial services and technology, holding numerous senior leadership positions at Primatics Financial and large enterprises including Fannie Mae and John Hancock. In addition to her role at Pendo, she serves as a member of the board of directors for Docebo.


Price holds a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Mathematics Education from NC State University, and a Master of Liberal Arts in Extension Studies, Software Engineering from Harvard University. She lives with her family in Wilmington, NC and enjoys spending time on the water, and playing a contentious game of Catan with her boys or watching them enjoy their favorite activities.


Abstract:  Conventional wisdom tells us that ambitious business majors make their way into boardrooms and aspiring technical folks lead R&D teams, but Trisha Price’s journey from engineer to the C-suite proves that business and technology are not mutually exclusive. In fact, a strong technical background gave Price the confidence and skills to delve into functions as diverse as product, sales, customer success, and corporate expansion. Price will discuss the levers she pulled along her “jungle gym” of a career to earn a spot in the C-suite at fast-growth North Carolina companies like nCino and Pendo, providing inspiration for the next generation of NC State engineers. 


The event is free and open to the public.  Ample free parking is available on Centennial Campus after 5 pm.  For directions and more information, click here.
