Tennis star Serena Williams and Intuit Inc. (NASDAQ:INTU) CEO Brad Smith have been named to the board of directors at online survey platform SurveyMonkey Inc.
Founded in 1999, SurveyMonkey competes against fellow online survey startup Qualtrics. The Palo Alto, Calif., startup was valued at $2 billion in late 2014. It has raised more than $1 billion in debt and equity enabling it to delay an initial public offering.
Dave Goldberg, a former Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO) executive, was CEO of SurveyMonkey and married to Sandberg when he died unexpectedly in 2015. He had joined SurveyMonkey in 2009 when a group of investors bought the company from its founders. Zander Lurie, previously an executive at GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO), was brought in to lead the company following Goldberg’s death.
