The three industry veterans join Cloudinary at a pivotal moment for the company and the industry with the pandemic-driven market shift towards digital, online engagements driving unprecedented demand for creating rich visual experiences. Named to the Forbes Cloud 100 for the fourth consecutive year—the publication’s ranking of the best, most valuable private cloud companies in the world—Cloudinary has reached several key growth milestones in 2021, including reaching the one million user mark. The company also successfully launched the first in a series of new products, Media Optimizer — a low-code solution to help brands more easily deliver the best, fastest visual content every time. Just six months since launch, Media Optimizer has been adopted by dozens of customers, including Active Sports, Hunter Fan, and Out&Out, and was recognized with a 2021 MarTech Breakthrough Award.

“At the heart of Cloudinary is a company fueled by innovation and a passion for delivering fast and engaging visual experiences all over the world,” said Cloudinary Co-founder and CEO, Itai Lahan. “The past year has seen a number of milestone moments for Cloudinary and as we plan for the future, we’ll remain focused on helping our customers unleash the full potential of their visual media. It’s an honor to announce our expanded team with these three new appointments, each bringing a wealth of experience that will be critical to our success during this next phase of growth. I’m excited for the months ahead.”
