Calendly, March 29, 2021
Calendly experienced rapid growth in 2020, and we’re showing no sign of slowing down in 2021 — for both the employees and the product.
That’s why we’re excited to announce that Annie Pearl has joined us as our new Chief Product Officer. She brings an impressive background to Calendly with a number of venture-backed enterprise startups under her belt including Glassdoor and Box. At Calendly, Annie will be responsible for the company's product vision and strategy, leading its growing product management, user experience, and content teams to create value for millions of users.
“Today’s digital experiences have raised both business and consumer expectations, making strategic product direction even more critical as we enter our next phase of growth,” said Tope Awotona, founder and CEO of Calendly. “Meetings are the lifeblood of high-performing teams, and Calendly has become an increasingly important part of the tech stack. Annie’s experience with other fast-growth enterprise companies will be instrumental in helping us shape and grow our product offering as we continue to modernize scheduling across teams and organizations.”
“Time is the new currency. With the lines between work and home continuing to blur, finding time that works for teams to collaborate and connect is increasingly challenging,” Annie said. “Scheduling is a critical part of today’s remote/hybrid workforce, and Calendly can simplify it even further. I look forward to leading our team in developing new features that meet the needs of an ever changing environment, and am proud to join an innovative company with an incredible growth trajectory.”
Earlier in her career, Annie was Glassdoor’s Chief Product Officer, as well as Director of Product Management at Box. In 2019, she was named one of the Most Influential Women in Bay Area Business by the San Francisco Business Times. We’re thrilled to have Annie on board!
