Asana Names SaaS Industry Veteran Anne Raimondi to Board of Directors

San Francisco, February 21, 2019 – Asana, a leading work management platform for teams, today announced the appointment of Anne Raimondi to its Board of Directors.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Anne to Asana’s Board of Directors as we pioneer a new way to work by giving teams the clarity they need to achieve extraordinary things together,” said Dustin Moskovitz, CEO of Asana. “In addition to her accomplishments driving international scale and go-to market programs for some of the world’s foremost SaaS companies, she’s deeply aligned with our mission and long-term growth ambitions. At the end of the day, all successful projects and collaboration comes down to teamwork, and Anne’s impressive leadership track record, coupled with a personal passion for companies at the forefront of the future of work, is a tremendous addition to Asana.”

Raimondi is an industry veteran with over 20 years of experience driving growth for B2B and B2C companies, taking them from startup to nationally recognized brands. Most recently, Raimondi served as the SVP of Operations for Zendesk, driving employee growth from 350 to over 2,000 across 20 global offices, while operationalizing their strategy to expand into multiple product lines and grow up-market to better serve enterprise customers.

Prior to Zendesk, Raimondi was as a leader and executive for technology innovators including Survey Monkey, Blue Nile and eBay. Illustrative of her strong commitment to fostering innovation in tech, Raimondi is a Lecturer in Management at Stanford Graduate School of Business, teaching two popular courses: “Startup Garage” and “POWer: Building the Entrepreneurial Mindset.”

“Work management is transforming how teams around the world collaborate, and Asana is an instrumental leader in creating and shaping this rapidly emerging category,” said Raimondi. “I’m excited to share my experience of helping hyper-growth SaaS companies drive results, while strategically scaling teams and talent, with Asana as they embark on their next stage of global growth. I’m personally inspired by Asana’s mission which is helping teams everywhere unlock their full collaboration potential.”

In 2018, Asana completed its Series D and Series E funding rounds, bringing the company’s total valuation to $1.5 billion and fueling international growth with strategic expansions into Australia and Japan. In addition, Asana was named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Collaborative Work Management Tools for The Enterprise, Q4 2018 report and a 2018 Top 5 “Best Place to Work” by Fortune Magazine.

Adding to its product innovation momentum, in Q4 2018 the company launched Asana Business which introduced a new suite of features for project managers, portfolio leads and management to best allocate resources and understand progress towards big objectives. Coming in early 2019, Asana will introduce an end-to-end solution for marketing and creative teams on Asana Business to manage their entire marketing and design process from start to finish.
