New York, NY — April 1, 2019 Renovata & Company is pleased to announce Mary Good’s placement as chief people officer at Squarespace, an all-in-one platform that enables customers to claim a domain, build a website, sell online and market a brand. Good has taken on a pivotal role for the company as it continues to grow rapidly and considers an IPO.
“Mary is a human resources executive with more than 20 years of results-oriented leadership in global, founder-driven companies, including two Fortune Top 100 Companies for Work For,” says Mannie Gill, Renovata & Company partner. “She understands how to manage fast-paced growth, significant transformation and business repositioning in the technology sector—and she’s passionate about developing and leading human resources teams to achieve business results.”
Founded in 2003, Squarespace is a cloud-based web development platform that offers a website builder, domain registration, e-commerce platform, blogging platform and a hosting service. It provides a hosted and managed environment with do-it-yourself tools for creating and maintaining domains, websites, blogs, stores and portfolios.
The company is headquartered in New York City and has approximately 750 employees and more than 1 million paying customers globally. The core of the client base is made up of individuals and small businesses with fewer than 10 employees. In 2017, the business generated close to $300M in revenue, delivering over 50% year-over-year growth. Over the past eight years, Squarespace has secured nearly $280M in funding and assembled a set of experienced high-profile backers, including General Atlantic, Accel Partners and Index Ventures.
“Squarespace is defined by our insistence on providing an unparalleled user experience,” Good says. “All of our team members are charged with bringing creativity, honesty and intellectual rigor to their responsibilities. We have high expectations of each other and work as a team to build things we are all proud of. That mindset, along with our execution, has allowed Squarespace to create revolutionary products and grow into the profitable business it is today.”
Prior to joining Squarespace, Good was chief people officer for Fuze, a global cloud communications and collaboration software platform for the enterprise. Before that, she was chief human resources officer for hCentive, a global healthcare Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company. She has held numerous other executive human resources roles at companies including CACI International Inc., SRA International, Blackboard, Inc. and American Management Systems (AMS).
