Holly Firestone, Director, Community, joined Salesforce in March of 2015 and manages the online Trailblazer Community and Community Programs such as the Salesforce MVP Program and Salesforce Community Group Program. Holly has dedicated her career to building thriving community programs starting with a community group program at a nonprofit, followed by the User Group Program at Atlassian, and now running Community Programs at Salesforce. When Holly started her first role as a Community Manager, there were very few companies with established B2B communities. Now, with the power of community becoming more and more visible, companies everywhere want to learn how to build their own communities. Holly is thrilled to share her experience in community building with any fellow community-builders and those who are interested in learning about the power of community. Most importantly though, she’s honored to be working at her #dreamjob for the best company and community in the world!
Holly lives in Austin, Texas, USA with her husband and dog Zeus. She loves to travel (she studied abroad in Barcelona in college!), eat Manchego cheese and patatas bravas, cook, spend time with friends, and laugh hysterically at her husband’s ridiculous jokes.
