Groupon news update: as part of the restructuring following the departure of Groupon’s eccentric CEO Andrew Mason, the company have appointed four new heads.
The daily deals company have had to look at a serious restructuring of all aspects of their business when they were forced to remove Andrew Mason from his senior position in order to save the company and its reputation. They promoted Eric Lefkofsky to the CEO position and have now inserted four new faces into the management structure in order to solidify the company again.
“Groupon has made four new appointments to its senior team. Robbie Schwietzer has been named SVP of operations while Lisa Kennedy has been appointed to the role of VP, general manager, of Groupon Reserve, and David Kerr brought in as VP, General Manager, of Home Services. Finally, Hoke Horne will lead Groupon’s global commercial finance team as vice president.
“We’re thrilled to bring Robbie, Lisa, David and Hoke and their incredible caliber of talent to Groupon,” said Eric Lefkofsky, CEO, Groupon. “All four are well-regarded experts in their fields and will help take Groupon to the next level.”
Having spent 10 years at Amazon, most recently as Vice President of Amazon Prime, Schwietzer has become involved in implementing, overseeing and growing Groupon’s various enterprise operations.
Kennedy will head the Groupon Reserve team, having previously founded Hopscotch, a daily deal site aimed at parents in India.
Meanwhile, Kerr has been tasked with driving outreach to home and auto-related merchants and create a marketplace experience for Groupon customers to find, schedule and purchase deals from local service providers.
Horne has been brought in to lead Groupon’s global commercial finance team and help steer finance operations for Groupon’s global businesses. He joins the company from Juniper Networks, where he previously served as VP of software finance and pricing.”
As well as confirming some news faces Groupon have also looked to add some new services to their quota. These include Groupon Reserve which permits members to reserve restaurants, spas and so one that are usually very exclusive and difficult to get into. Groupon Goods is another new department and they offer white goods at reduced prices – something every home owner will be jumping at the chance to participate in thanks to the economic climate of late.
