David Hahn, a former LinkedIn executive who most recently served as president and chief product officer at GoFundMe, has joined Instacart as chief product officer, where he will “lead the next chapter of the company's product and platform expansion,” the San Francisco-based grocery delivery firm said.
"Instacart is a once-in-a-lifetime transformative company—it makes lives easier, helps brick-and-mortar retail compete online and fundamentally changes the way people shop. I couldn't be more excited about being part of a company that brings useful products and services to an increasingly digital world," Hahn said in a statement.
Hahn has spent most of his career developing and launching useful products. He previously served for more than nine years as VP of product management at LinkedIn. In 2013, his last full year with the company, Hahn was the key architect of the monetization strategy that took product portfolio revenue from the earliest growth stages to more than $1.5 billion.
Hahn went on to join Greylock Partners as an entrepreneur in residence, where he consulted with portfolio companies on both product and monetization strategies and worked with them to explore new opportunities. Most recently, Hahn was chief product officer at GoFundMe, the crowdsourced fundraising platform that has raised more than $4 billion for life-saving medical expenses, startup funding and everything between.
"David has a proven track record of successful innovation and execution, and Instacart is delighted to have him join our executive team," Instacart founder and CEO Apoorva Mehta said in a statement. "We knew early in the process he was the perfect fit, both culturally and as a visionary. We can't wait to see how David contributes to—and expands—our mission."
The grocery delivery service recently raised another $350 million in funding following a period of rapid expansion, during which it added new customers such as Albertsons, Aldi, Fresh Thyme and Sam's Club, among others.
