Headspace Appoints CeCe Morken as First President and Chief Operating Officer
Morken joins Headspace after 13 years at Intuit, where she most recently served as Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Strategic Partner Group.
Headspace is a Los Angeles-based mental wellbeing company which is valued at over a billion dollars. Reaching more than 65 million users in 190 countries, it was one of the first meditation apps. Now, its Headspace for Work service is being rolled out as a service for employees at companies like Adobe, General Electric, Hyatt and Starbucks.
Morken will be reporting directly to the company’s co-founder and chief executive, Rich Pierson, and will be responsible for global operations and the execution of Headspace’s strategy as it aims to continue to accelerate its growth.
Pierson said that Headspace was lucky to be in a position to attract someone with Morken’s experience.
“Her addition to our team comes at a critical time as Headspace endeavors to provide people everywhere with tools to help them mindfully navigate these uncertain and unprecedented times,” Pierson said in a statement. “I look forward to partnering with CeCe as we continue to grow and expand our offerings beyond meditation for our consumer, business-to-business and healthcare segments.”
