TORONTO, Aug. 2, 2018 – Loopio, the leading RFP response software, announced today that Jenny Cheng, former Salesforce executive and current VP at PayPal, has joined its Board of Directors.
Cheng is a strategic and performance-focused executive with over 15 years of experience leading several high-growth US and global organizations. As an early Product & Technology executive at Salesforce, Cheng was a key contributor as the company grew from 200 to 10,000 employees and from $20M to $2.5B in revenue. Prior to joining PayPal, Cheng was the Chief Product Officer at InsideView.
“We’re delighted to have Jenny join our board,” said Zakir Hemraj, Loopio Co-founder and CEO. “It’s been a long and thorough search for an Independent Director, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. She brings so much relevant experience to the table and will be a cornerstone in our next stage of growth.”
In the search for an independent Board Member, Loopio worked very closely with The Athena Alliance, an organization dedicated to advancing gender diversity in the boardroom, and its founder and CEO Coco Brown to find potential candidates. "Athena's ability to elevate access to powerful leaders like Jenny comes from the tenacity of leaders like Zak, who know that they will build the team they want if they leverage a broader and more diverse trusted network. We are thrilled to have facilitated such a positive outcome."
“Diversity is our strength, and we are committed to driving this forward at every level of our company. Partnering with Coco and the Athena team was a perfect opportunity to move the needle,” said Hemraj.
“Loopio’s dedication to building a customer-focused product and company culture is key to its current and future success,” said Cheng. “I’m excited to join the Board of Directors and help further accelerate Loopio’s growth.”
