Matthew Gallatin Joins Stack Overflow as Chief Financial Officer
Gallatin brings nearly three decades of leadership experience in finance and scaling high growth technology companies to Stack Overflow.
Stack Overflow, a leading knowledge-sharing platform visited by more than 100 million people each month, today announced the appointment of Matthew Gallatin as the company’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Gallatin brings nearly three decades of leadership experience in finance and scaling high growth technology companies to Stack Overflow. He will oversee financial operations and 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.
“Many of the world’s most innovative companies and technologies are fueled by the collective power of Stack Overflow’s community and products, including Stack Overflow for Teams,” said Gallatin. “I’m looking forward to joining a company that is reshaping how people learn and share technical skills while also reimagining the future of how we work.”
Gallatin most recently served as CFO of Reltio and previously held CFO roles at Drawbridge, OneLogin, and ShareThis. He worked in finance leadership roles at Brand.net, Yahoo!, Applied Materials, and began his career as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch.
“Matt brings a deep history of helping companies scale through hyper-growth journeys,” said Prashanth Chandrasekar, CEO at Stack Overflow. “His extensive experience driving predictable, operational, and financial growth will be invaluable to us as we enter our next stage as part of the Prosus family.”
The CFO appointment comes on the heels of the Stack Overflow for Teams Freemium release, the launch of Collectives™ on Stack Overflow, and Prosus N.V.’s (“Prosus”) acquisition of Stack Overflow earlier this year. Stack Overflow has spent the last 13 years building one of the largest technical communities in the world that is visited by more than 100 million people every month, making its public question-and-answer platform one of the 50 most popular websites in the world. The company’s growing Stack Overflow for Teams product is trusted by thousands of organizations around the world, including Bloomberg, Microsoft, Expensify, and Zapier.
