You can’t go anywhere these days without hearing about rising star, $3 billion tech startup DocuSign and its larger-than-life CEO Keith Krach.
Krach is a big, tall guy with a big personality. We recently had coffee with him, and in his cheerful, booming voice he told us a great story that gave us insight into his character and life these days working for DocuSign.
He was standing outside a coffee shop in San Francisco where the company is based and where Krach lives (he recently bought a house in the City).
He had a fresh cup of Joe in his hand and was checking messages on his phone with his other hand, when a thief ran by, snatched the phone from his hand and ran off.
Krach sprang into action and ran after him, shouting in his booming voice the whole time, “Stop that guy, he stole my iPhone,” (we’re paraphrasing here … the actual language was somewhat more colorful, we understand). His on-foot chase was eventually spotted by some policemen. The thief ran into a store and was trapped there. Police caught the guy and recovered the phone.
