The recently-acquired, knowledge-sharing platform Stack Overflow announced Tuesday that Matthew Gallatin will join the company as its Chief Financial Officer.

In his new role, Gallatin will oversee financial operations and will partner with the senior leadership team to drive strategic growth across Stack Overflow’s two lines of business: Stack Overflow for Teams and Reach & Relevance.

Gallatin most recently served as CEO of Reltio, a cloud data management platform based in Redwood City, California. He has also held CFO roles at several startups including Drawbridge, OneLogin, and ShareThis.

With over 20 years of experience working in finance, Gallatin has worked in leadership roles across the internet and tech industry, including at Brand.net, Yahoo and Applied Materials. He began his career as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch.

In June 2021, Prosus, the investment arm of the South African holding company Naspers, acquired Stack Overflow for $1.8 billion. The company has been around since 2008, when it was founded by Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky as an online public platform for developers to ask questions and trade information on a variety of topics related to computer programming. Prosus is also the primary stakeholder of Chinese internet conglomerate Tencent.
