CEO Rich Williams & new CTO Colin Bodell visit Groupon Seattle
Groupon recently added a new leader to our C-suite: Colin Bodell, Chief Technology Officer. As part of a North American tour to our Engineering and Product hubs, Colin and CEO Rich Williams made their final stop at our Seattle office, where Colin will reside. Grouponers in Seattle had the chance to mingle with the two leaders during an informal meet and greet. Conversations ranged from business questions to fun things to do in Seattle (using Groupons, of course).
Colin joins Groupon from American Eagle Outfitters, where he was CTO. Additionally—something Groupon is incredibly excited about—he serves as a trustee and board chair of AnitaB.org (formerly the Anita Borg Institute of Technology) as well as board chair of the National Center for Women and Information Technology. Together, with our Chief Product Officer, Jay Sullivan, the two will lead the technology strategy and implementation of the tools which serve Groupon’s 49 million customers worldwide.
