Name: Eddie Goncalves
Location: Boston, MA
Position: Customer Success Lead
Hi, my name is Eddie. I was born in Cape Verde but grew up on the best city on Earth: “Bawston.” I love it all, from the accent to the clam chowdah to the constant sport championship parades. Growing up I was very outdoorsy, camping, hiking and fishing whenever I could; that led me years later to work for the EarthWatch Institute and conservation programs at the Franklin Park Zoo. In college I got my bachelor’s in environmental sustainability due to my passion for sustainable growth and conservation. Post-college, I started working with local startups on customer success initiatives to increase satisfaction and revenues. I recently joined CELLINK – I’m very excited to be a part of the family and help achieve our goals.
