Alison French is co-founder and CEO of Emerged Inc., a SaaS healthcare technology company focused on bringing leads to healthcare organizations. Headquartered in Carlsbad, CA, Emerged automates the healthcare sales process, enabling sales professionals to spend less time prospecting and nurturing, and more time selling.
French has almost two decades of experience building brands, launching products and crafting sales-focused marketing strategies at myriad companies. From building out a marketing team at the world’s largest yacht brokerage at the age of 22 to being employee number one at several multi-million dollar companies, French prides herself on having an innate sense of driving businesses forward. Currently, she is reimagining how the healthcare tech space will evolve in a post-pandemic world.
French's journey to one of the country's few female CEOs and founders in the tech industry brought her through five countries in a span of 18 years, and this unique perspective has helped shape her business perspective. Though French resides in San Diego where Emerged is based, she has worked remotely virtually her entire professional life due to her husband’s military career, having lived in five states and three countries.
In addition to CEO, she also proudly dons the titles of mom, Marine Corps spouse and MBA. When not helping raise companies, French and her husband are raising her three children (ages 8, 5 and 2). In her free time, she enjoys gardening and is currently creating a Pollinator Paradise, to encourage visits from bees, Monarch butterflies and hummingbirds. As a mother of daughters, French is passionate about helping other women juggle careers and motherhood.
