Shutterstock, a global technology company offering a creative platform for high-quality assets, tools and services, announced the expansion of its leadership team with three hires over the last six months, including the addition of Lou Weiss as Chief Marketing Officer. David Petts also joins as Chief Revenue Officer, and Lisa Nadler, who joined the company in 2017, as Chief Human Resources Officer.
“We are delighted to have brought in a team of seasoned professionals, with years of experience in their respective fields, to help steer the company for sustainable and scalable growth,” said Jon Oringer, founder and CEO of Shutterstock. “Lisa, David and Lou’s combined experience will be instrumental as we continue to evolve our business from a marketplace to a creative platform. They each have a clear understanding of our strategy around building a robust platform, enhancing the network effects exhibited throughout our product, focusing on customer success and attracting and retaining talent that enables the successful execution of our business strategy.”
Weiss brings over 20 years of global digital and brand marketing experience across multiple industries to the team. Most recently, Lou served as President & CMO at Plated, where he was brought in to drive growth in the newly popular meal-kit category. With the customer always being top of mind, he led the effort to create an integrated and unique customer experience via differentiated brand positioning. This led to the successful sale of Plated to Albertsons Companies in September, 2017.
Previously, Lou held a variety of executive roles at the Vitamin Shoppe, including 7 years as CMO and most recently as EVP, Chief Marketing & Merchandising Officer. During his tenure, top line revenue scaled to over $1.2 billion and e-commerce revenues tripled. Lou was a member of the management team that led the company through a successful IPO in 2009.
