Whisper’s Growth and Goals
I am really excited to share that Mark Troughton has joined Whisper as our first President! Mark has been a leader in the tech ecosystem for over 15 years and is one of the best executives in the country. Mark is best known as the President of Green Dot (NYSE: GDOT), which he helped build from a startup into a large public company with more than $500M in revenue.
As a longtime friend of Whisper, Mark has watched us grow since we first started talking 18 months ago. The Whisper community now has over 10 million monthly active users, who open the app on average more than 1 million times per hour. But our goals are much bigger, and we all felt that this was the right time to bring Mark onboard to help us achieve them. I speak on behalf of the entire Whisper team when I say that we are so looking forward to his leadership and support in the coming years.
