Since mid-2022, Landsman has been a member of the Stash board, where she guided the companies through seismic change and record-breaking growth in consumer engagement and profitability. Prior to last week, she was a General Partner at NEA, a global venture capital firm with more than $25 billion in assets under management1.
“Stash empowers millions of Americans to manage and grow their wealth. Its simple-yet-disruptive subscription platform, rooted in a deep commitment to the financial well-being of our customers, is exactly what millions of everyday Americans need today,” said Landsman. “I’m so appreciative to both Brandon and Ed and excited to work with the incredible team at Stash. Together they’ve built a rock-solid foundation.”
In addition to leading Jet.com to its $3.3 billion acquisition by Wal-Mart, Landsman joins Stash at a crucial time for the company. In spite of inflation fears and a looming recession, revenue last year surpassed $100 million and grew nearly 30%, with users depositing almost $3 billion regularly and automatically.
“Liza is the right person to lead Stash as we continue to hit major revenue and customer milestones and evolve the business. Her experience and knowledge of consumer products, e-commerce, and fintech is ideally suited to the opportunities ahead,” said Brandon Krieg. “Liza brings the scale and expertise needed to help Stash continue on its trajectory, and I am thrilled to support her as she takes the reins as CEO of Stash and delivers even more value for our subscribers. She has been so insightful in just the few months she has been working with us.”
Efforts will be focused on new areas of the business under Krieg’s leadership; Ed Robinson will remain Stash’s Co-Founder and President to drive execution under his leadership.
