We are thrilled to welcome Amruta Moktali to the Cleo team as our first Chief Product Officer. Amruta has a passion for building amazing products that are supported by data, artificial intelligence and analytics. She comes to Cleo from Salesforce, where she was VP of Product Management for Einstein Analytics, an AI software that changed the way enterprises make decisions with machine learning and data. Before that, she also worked on the Salesforce Platform, which offers tools for developers. Before Salesforce, she was Head of Product at Topsy Labs, a company that Apple acquired help power some of their deep search capabilities. Today, she lives in San Francisco with her husband and two daughters.
Her experience and perspective will make a significant impact on the evolution of our product. Our investors have made the analogy that “Cleo is the Salesforce of parenthood” and we agree! Like Salesforce, Cleo is a platform that sits on top of a stack that includes a range of different tools. We provide a single product that allows parents to manage all of the services, resources and support tools they might need before, during and after pregnancy, adoption or surrogacy.
“As a working mom of two, I’ve experienced firsthand many of the personal challenges that come with starting a family while growing a career. This sparked my initial interest in the concept behind Cleo, but I was convinced I needed to join the company after hearing the remarkable feedback and passionate responses from families using the product. Cleo stands apart because it’s the only company set up to provide comprehensive support to parents across the globe. The product should be table stakes at every company, everywhere, and I want to help them get there through product development and innovation.”
