Operators Ep 20: Travis Boyce (Allbirds)
Travis Boyce is the Head of Global Retail Operations at Allbirds. He joined as one of the first 10 employees when the company was less than a year old. Prior to joining Allbirds, he worked in operations and finance at Chobani and in investment banking at Morgan Stanley.
In this episode we talk about the strategy behind Allbirds retail locations, how Covid has affected the shipping process for consumer business, and the importance Allbirds puts on offsetting their carbon emissions. He also shares about how his finance background helped him learn to solve problems, the benefits of generalists in the early days of startups, and why he’s happy he waited for the right opportunity.
