Greenfly, a community collaboration platform that helps companies tell their authentic brand stories at scale, today announced the hiring of Ken Walker as the company’s Chief Product Officer.
Walker brings extensive experience in building, scaling and optimizing online web and mobile products. He joins Greenfly as the company continues to build out its global Fortune 500 client base and expand its executive leadership team, including the recent appointment of Kerri Pollard as Chief Revenue Officer. Walker will lead the Greenfly platform into its next level of growth, with a focus on expanding the power of its sophisticated collaboration tools. Most recently, Walker served as Chief Product Officer at online relationship website eHarmony. Prior to eHarmony, he joined online employment marketplace ZipRecruiter as employee number five, helping to grow the company beyond $100MM in annual revenue.
Walker said, “Greenfly has built a platform that clearly resonates with customers and aligns well with macro trends in marketing. By providing the ability to create and share authentic content at scale, Greenfly is changing the way brands communicate with their customers. I am thrilled to be joining Greenfly at this exciting stage as we continue to innovate and scale the platform.”
Walker’s appointment comes as Greenfly continues its rapid growth. In January, the software company raised $8.5 million in Series B funding, bringing Greenfly’s total funding to date to $14.7 million.
“Ken is a seasoned technology leader with a strong track record of success in building world-class products and experiences,” said Daniel Kirschner, CEO of Greenfly. “He’s the ideal executive to drive our next phase of growth.”
