Travis Hyde

Chief of Staff

What are your credentials and past experience working in your position? 

I have 20+ years’ experience in technology and I’ve now worked in almost every major vertical as Founder & CEO of OrangeParachute, acquired in 2017.  

Following that exit, I’ve been in a Chief of Staff role for the past 5-years, taking SaaS products to market and implementing and acting as the “integrator” for the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS).  

What do you like about working at S44? 

Our people and culture are truly special.  I am disabled (paraplegia) and I’ve felt nothing but warmth and acceptance since day one.  It’s truly special to be made to feel special, and I especially appreciate this special fact.

Also, the fact that our leadership is embracing the EOS model is very exciting, as most businesses don’t figure out the importance of a business operating system in a timely manner.

I also appreciate challenges, and I believe that we will accomplish great things together as we continue to grow.

What’s your background? 

I grew up in northern Minnesota on the “IronRange”.  I literally grew up on an iron ore mine, as my grandfather was a foreman and lived in a trailer house on the mining property.  I grew up poor, but happy.  Yah, you betcha!

What are the values that drive you? 

Kindness, a Humble Ego, Transparency, Grit,Empathy, and Infinite Curiosity.‍
