We’re excited to announce that consumer technology veteran Carolyn Everson will be joining Instacart as President, beginning September 7. As President, Carolyn will oversee Instacart’s Retail, Business Development and Advertising businesses, as well as the company’s People, Policy & Government Affairs, Legal, Partnerships, Instacart Pickup and Care teams.

Carolyn is an industry legend, best known for cultivating strong, trusted relationships that drive strategic value for partners. At Instacart, partnerships and relationships are at the heart of everything we do. With more than 600 retail partners and thousands of advertisers helping power our marketplace, Carolyn’s unmatched experience and authenticity will be a key driving force for our business as our teams prepare for our next chapter of growth.

Carolyn joins Instacart following more than a decade at Facebook, where she was most recently the Vice President of Global Marketing Solutions, leading the company’s relationships with top advertisers and agencies. In that role, she oversaw a team focused on global partnerships and agencies, as well as Facebook’s Creative Shop. Throughout her more than 10 years at Facebook, she helped the company evolve from a high-growth private company to an at-scale global leader with the second largest digital ads platform in the world. Prior to Facebook, she was the Corporate Vice President of Microsoft’s Global Advertising Sales and Trade Marketing Teams, where she led the company’s advertising business across Bing, MSN, Windows Live, Mobile, Gaming, Atlas, and the Microsoft Media Network. She also spent nearly seven years at MTV Networks, where she served as Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President of U.S. Ad Sales for MTV Networks.

We’re excited to welcome Carolyn as our new President as we continue to reimagine the role Instacart can play in the future of food by unlocking more inspiration, personalization and accessibility for consumers around the world, while also driving even more growth and engagement for our partners and the broader grocery industry.
