The VentureFizz Podcast: Chris Litster - CEO at Buildium

For the 108th episode of our podcast, I interviewed Chris Litster, CEO at Buildium.

Chris had a goal of being a CEO of a company, and his experience at Constant Contact put him on the right path to make this professional goal a reality. He held multiple leadership roles over the 10 years he spent at the company and saw the business grow at a hypergrowth pace. Chris is actually one of the growing number of CEO’s that was part of the team that scaled Constant Contact to an IPO and acquisition by Endurance International Group for $1.1B.

Chris joined Buildium originally as its Chief Customer Officer before moving into the CEO position about a year ago. Buildium is the property management solution for real estate professionals, and the company has been growing aggressively. Its platform services over 16,000 customers in more than 50 countries, totaling over 1.8 million residential units under management.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • Chris’ background and how he got involved in the tech industry.
  • The story of Constant Contact and how they scaled the company.
  • The details on Buildium and their market opportunity, plus growth plans.
  • Advice for others looking to become a CEO.
  • When a startup should think about getting a board of advisors.
  • Plus, a lot more.
