Allen-Based SaaS Tech Startup ScaleWith Appoints New President

ScaleWith Inc., an Allen-based SaaS technology company, announced it has appointed Edward L. Dandridge as president, effective immediately.

The startup said its tech transforms social impact from a cost center into a revenue generator by embedding social impact funding into B2B and B2G transactions.

“Ed’s accomplished background in law, deep expertise in corporate affairs, extensive management experience leading global organizations, and demonstrated track record of converting vision into business results ideally qualifies him to serve as our president as we position ScaleWith for significant growth,” ScaleWith founder and CEO Paul Polizzotto said in a statement.

Overseeing operations and teams

In his new role, Dandridge will work alongside Polizzotto managing all aspects of ScaleWith’s day-to-day business strategy and operations to ensure engineering, technology, product, business development, sales, go-to-market, and customer success achieve the company’s goals for growth and revenue.

He will be based in New York and will oversee ScaleWith’s operations and teams in the United States and United Kingdom.

Spun out of CBS following CBS’ merger with Viacom, ScaleWith incorporates social impact funding — support for programs and companies addressing climate/sustainability, diversity, equity & inclusion, veterans/first responders, STEAM workforce development, etc. — into B2B and B2G transactions as a differentiator for sales organizations and as a value-add for procurement teams.

Earlier this week, ScaleWith launched its SellWith products on the Salesforce AppExchange, enabling Sales Cloud customers to increase revenue by improving new business win rates and preserving pricing while achieving social impact commitments at no additional cost to the deal, the company said.

Dandridge has more than 30 years’ experience in senior leadership roles across four Fortune 500 companies and has served on executive management teams of leading global companies working closely with CEOs and boards of directors.

His career has spanned government and public affairs, advertising, strategy consulting, and media, as well as marketing and communications, across industries with C-level roles at AIG, Boeing, Marsh & McLennan, and Nielsen.

Dandridge serves on the President’s Advisory Committee of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia and is the board chair of Susan G. Komen.

“I am excited to work alongside Paul and the talented ScaleWith team to deliver our SaaS products that transform social impact funding from a cost center into a revenue generator to drive sales and increase revenue at no additional cost to our customers around the world,” Dandridge said.
