Asana, a leading work management platform for teams, has appointed Lorrie Norrington and Sydney Carey to its Board of Directors. Both women bring extensive SaaS experience from companies like eBay, Intuit, and Sumo Logic. Last year, Asana completed its Series D and Series E funding rounds, bringing the company’s total valuation to $1.5 billion and could be gearing up for an initial public offering.

“I’m thrilled to welcome both Lorrie and Sydney to Asana’s Board of Directors as we continue our leadership in redefining how teams and organizations achieve clarity of purpose, plan and responsibility so they can focus on the work that matters most,” said Dustin Moskovitz, CEO of Asana. “Their combined industry-leading expertise in operational and financial excellence, in addition to being deeply aligned with Asana’s mission and vision, are exceptional assets for Asana. I look forward to working closely with Lorrie and Sydney throughout our next stage of global growth.”

Norrington is a Board Member and Operating Partner at Lead Edge Capital and previously ran the eBay Marketplace business globally, was the CEO of Shopping.com and was an EVP at Intuit where she led the Quicken and QuickBooks businesses. She currently serves on the boards of Colgate-Palmolive, Autodesk, HubSpot, Eventbrite, BigCommerce and Signal Sciences.

Carey has more than two decades of operational and strategic experience with extensive expertise in public markets, corporate finance and accounting, and public and pre-IPO company leadership, both as an executive and board member. Carey currently serves as the CFO for leading machine data analytics platform Sumo Logic. Prior to joining Sumo Logic, Carey served as CFO of Duo Security, Apttus, Zscaler, MongoDB and TIBCO.
