The opportunity that lies ahead for Online Buddies is enormous; and having been trusted to lead this next chapter is deeply humbling and incredibly exhilarating.
“Over the upcoming months, I will be focused on reevaluating our individual product visions, accelerating product innovation and execution, and increasing member satisfaction.”
