Huffington’s other hires are Laurie Weisberg as chief revenue officer, and Amy Vezzetti, who will join Thrive as chief people officer.
With a mission to help end burnout culture in corporate America, Huffington says she selected these executives because, “they’re deeply aligned with our goal of changing the way we work and live. Every day at Thrive, we’re helping to end the worldwide culture of stress and burnout, and so it’s essential that we lead, live and work by example.”
