Malouf™ CEO Speaks at Tech Summit
Sam Malouf, co-founder and CEO of Malouf™ spoke at the Silicon Slopes Tech Summit in Salt Lake City last weekend.
“Silicon Slopes” refers to the emerging Salt Lake City metropolitan region that houses developing tech giants, including information technology specialists, software development and manufacturing and hardware development. Startups and entrepreneurs have capitalized on Utah’s progressive and supportive approach to business to build a thriving tech community.
Silicon Slopes Tech Summit brings more than 25,000 members of this community together to connect and discuss trends and share innovations. Mark Zuckerberg, creator and CEO of Facebook, was the keynote speaker.
Malouf spoke on an expert’s panel, held by Overstock, on product innovation and designing products for different markets. He joined Matt Davis from Walker Edison and Tom Erdman from Handy Living.
Malouf said, “My two cents on keeping your product offering both relevant and forward-thinking is to find ideas that change people’s lives. And when I say change, I don’t necessarily mean revolutionize. I just mean find a product that positively affects a consumer’s daily life. That’s manifested for us through improved technologies (Malouf Base App™), new offerings (CBD oil infusions) or what’s missing (55 Series of adjustables).”
More than one Malouf employee was invited to speak at the conference. Matt Vance, Malouf™ employee experience manager, spoke on a panel with Bamboo HR, InMoment, and the Senior VP of People and Culture at the Utah Jazz.
Brian Child, Malouf™ chief information officer, also attended the Summit to connect with like-minded tech companies. “A lot of people don’t see the in-house tech we have that keep our logistics, both internal and external, moving smoothly, which is great because that means it’s working. The Summit is an opportunity to connect with other experts to confirm best practices and continue to innovate.”
