She is currently a Lecturer in Management at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business.
“Asana is a recognized leader in the new wave of work management, and an essential part of how teams of all sizes and industries operate, scale and achieve their missions, no matter where or when they are collaborating,” said Raimondi. “I have been fortunate to experience the power of Asana and its culture first hand as a customer and board member, and am excited to join Dustin and the management team as we write the next chapter of our growth. There is no greater honor for us than to be part of daily clarity and delight for millions of organizations, and we are excited to harness the large addressable market ahead of us as we continue to expand our impact with teams around the world.”
