San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2013
Change.org, the world’s largest petition platform, has hired Jennifer Dulski as its new president and COO. Dulski will oversee the company’s operations and product and engineering teams.
The news comes shortly after Change.org hit 25 million users and hired former Yahoo! evangelist Tom Hughes-Croucher as its new chief technology officer.
Dulski is an entrepreneur with senior leadership experience at both Yahoo! and Google. She most recently led Google’s product management team for shopping and product ads. Prior to Google, Dulski served as co-founder and CEO of Dealmap, which was acquired by Google in 2011 and subsequently incorporated into Google Offers.
Before Dealmap, Dulski served in various leadership positions during her nine-year tenure at Yahoo!, most notably as vice president and general manager of local and commerce, where she led a $500 million portfolio of businesses and a 500-person team.
“Since the initial internet boom, people have been talking about how online technologies will empower people to change the world,” said Dulski. “But while we’ve seen great strides in online commerce and communication, we have yet to see a company succeed at facilitating social change on a mass scale. Change.org is uniquely positioned to bring the promise of global empowerment to fruition, and I’m thrilled to join the team.”
“Jennifer’s experience both as a leader at two of the world’s most influential tech companies and as an entrepreneur will play an essential role in moving Change.org toward our mission of empowering people everywhere,” said Ben Rattray, Change.org’s founder and CEO.
Before Yahoo!, Dulski founded and ran Summerbridge Pittsburgh (part of the Breakthrough Collaborative), a non-profit organization that helps underserved middle school students get on a path to college and inspires and prepares high school and college students to pursue careers in education. Her extensive community involvement includes chairing the board of the Silicon Valley site of The Breakthrough Collaborative and serving on the board of Little Passports, a company that inspires children to learn about other countries and cultures through mailed monthly travel packages.
Dulski will work from Change.org’s San Francisco headquarters in Potrero Hill. The world’s largest petition platform, Change.org has staff in 20 countries to serve its 25 million international users. The company is growing by 2 million users each month, making it one of the country’s fastest-growing social enterprises.
