After our two recent hires of PJ and Jac, I’m once again excited to announce a new addition to the Slice leadership team: Preethy Vaidyanathan as Chief Product Officer.
Preethy joins us from Tapad where she served as Chief Product Officer, leading product strategy and execution that helped transform the company from media services, to a SaaS leader that connects brands to consumers across devices. In her pre-Tapad days, she successfully led product teams at AppNexus, Medialets, Vibrant Media, McAfee, and Efficient Frontier.
Preethy is also a frequent industry panelist, speaker, and thought leader. She has been featured in publications like Forbes, Adweek, MarTech Advisor, eMarketer, and Wall Street Journal.
With a passion for advocating for women in tech, Preethy mentors at She Runs It. Originally from India, she now lives with her husband and two daughters in Long Island, and volunteers at the local Indian cultural chapter.
As our Chief Product Officer, Preethy will be responsible for product strategy and execution, across all of our consumer and restaurant products. She will lead product management, user experience research and design, UI, search engine optimization, and product marketing at Slice.
Here’s what Preethy had to say about coming to Slice:
“Ilir has created such a strong vision and mission of empowering local pizzerias. In keeping with this mission, I look forward to leading this motivated product team in creating products that delight consumers and pizzerias, and drive business value. I firmly believe continued innovation comes from true collaboration across product, engineering, and the commercial teams. I look forward to sharing many slices with my fellow leaders in creating this product culture.”
Welcome to Slice, Preethy!
