In addition to spearheading Spire’s international expansion to Singapore and Glasgow, she signed Spire’s first international MOU, first LOI, and first million-dollar contract. Theresa is a board member at Spire and is now focused on building the company’s weather product and driving the application of Spire’s weather data to improved business decision-making.
