Namely Welcomes Elisa Steele As Board Member

In HR, we know one thing to be true: all successful companies come down to the people. As we grow, we’re excited to announce a new addition to our team. Elisa Steele joins Namely as our first independent board member.
 

Elisa has more than 25 years of leadership experience at many of the world’s leading technology companies. She currently serves as President & CEO of Jive Software. In addition, Elisa has held senior positions at Microsoft, Skype, Yahoo!, NetApp, and Sun Microsystems.
 

“We’re thrilled to add Elisa as our first independent board member,” says Namely’s Founder & CEO Matt Straz. “She brings a wealth of expertise—including how to scale a SaaS business and how to perfect the end-to-end customer journey. Her experience will be invaluable as Namely continues on our path of steady growth.”
 

Elisa shares in Matt’s enthusiasm. “Namely has a smart, fantastic, and easy-to-use product for systematic HR delivery for mid-sized companies. This experience includes the engagement capabilities required in today’s environment for employees to participate and build a strong, engaged company culture. Companies are embracing Namely as a modern solution to manage HR needs, as well as transform workplaces for the better.”
 

Elisa joins Namely’s Board at an exciting time: we kicked off the year with a $50M Series D, expanded our Austin office, and announced two key hires, CTO Paul Rogers and VP of Benefits Matthew Monahan.
 

Here’s to working together to help mid-sized companies build a better workplace!
