Mike Derezin
Vice President of Sales Solutions, LinkedIn

Mike Derezin is passionate about building high performing teams, taking big ideas and bringing them to life, and changing the world for the better. To pursue these goals, he has chosen to be an entrepreneur most of his professional life. It’s been an exciting road for him with its fair share of ups and downs.

In the past five years at LinkedIn, he's come to appreciate a new role - intrapreneur – helping create and grow businesses within an existing company. With LinkedIn’s inspiring vision, unique assets, and massive scale, he's enjoyed the best of two worlds – the opportunity to both create and scale an organization – and the higher probability of success than a pure start-up.

Today, he inspires and leads his team to help change the way the world sells through social selling. With the data now available on LinkedIn and other digital properties, he believes it’s inevitable that social selling will soon be as mainstream for sales organizations as is the phone, email and CRM are today.
