Meet the Team: Cameron Hembree

Tell us a little bit about yourself, background, and role. How did you land here?

My name is Cameron, and I’m currently based out of Atlanta, GA. I launched my career in the data industry in 2017 at a company called Telo. While it was a support role at first, I quickly transitioned to a hybrid role that included sales. Over time, I found myself gravitating more and more to sales. Following an acquisition in 2021, I took a break from the industry to continue my education. In the summer of 2023, I was introduced to Trestle during my job hunt, and after the first couple of interviews, I knew I wanted to fight to be a part of the team. Now, I’m an account executive focused on growing new business.

What does your daily routine look like?

First thing I do when I sit down for work is make a priority list for the day and plan out how much time I expect each task to take. That list typically consists of follow ups, prepping for calls, handling developer signups, and prospecting for new business. I really enjoy startup environments because no matter how much planning you do, there’s really no telling what the day holds. Needless to say, it keeps me on my toes.

What excites you most about Trestle?

Right now, what excites me most is the opportunity to work with such an awesome team. Jordan and Kushal have done an excellent job building out the culture here. Feeling like part of the team can be especially tricky in a remote role, but everyone has gone out of their way to make sure that’s not an issue. Since I’ve joined the team, it has continued to grow, and I’m looking forward to more of that in the future.

What Trestle value do you relate to most? 

I think it has to be Growth Mindset. Although I’m not always great at it, I do try to find areas for growth personally and in my community. While it can be easy to think a value like this means growth at all costs, that’s not the case here. One phrase I’ve heard many times since I joined, “1% better everyday!”. It’s more about a consistent commitment to growing everyday, even if it’s only 1%.
