Former Google Cloud Channel Chief Carolee Gearhart Lands At Gympass
Google Cloud last month announced Gearhart was leaving her role as vice president of worldwide channel sales and global SMB sales after more than 3.5 years.
Former Google Cloud channel chief Carolee Gearhart, who left the cloud provider this month, has landed a new job at a corporate wellness platform.
Gearhart is the new chief revenue officer for New York-based Gympass, according to a LinkedIn post by the company. Gearhart will be responsible for driving Gympass’ client growth as it expands small and medium-sized business (SMB) customer base, the post says.
Founded in 2012, Gympass gives its customers’ employees access to 50,000-plus gyms and studios, and on-demand classes, personal trainers, and meditation and therapy sessions. It has more than 2,500 corporate clients in North America, Latin America and Europe, according to a recent press release. In November, Gympass announced the addition of Fitness International — owner of the LA Fitness, City Sports Club and Esporta Fitness brands that span 700-plus locations — to its network of participating locations.
“So delighted to be joining a company whose mission makes the world a better place...and the welcome couldn’t have been warmer from the whole Gympass team!” Gearhart said in a comment on the LinkedIn post.
Gearhart was Google Cloud’s channel chief and vice president of worldwide channel sales and global SMB sales for more than 3.5 years. Google Cloud last month announced she was leaving that post and that Kevin Ichhpurani, corporate vice president of global ecosystem and channels, would take on the No. 3 cloud provider’s channel chief title. Bronwyn Hastings, who joined Google Cloud last May from Citrix and currently is vice president of global technology partnerships, will have a new unspecified channel leadership role on Ichhpurani’s team under the reorganization. And Greg Tomb, who’s been vice president of sales, Google Workspace, security and geo enterprise since moving to Google Cloud last May from SAP, has assumed Gearhart’s former global SMB sales duties.
Gearhart’s Google Cloud colleagues honored her tenure with a parting gift — a $9,000 donation to Habitat Humanity, a nonprofit housing organization — according to a Tweet by Gearhart, who called it the “best going away honor” that she’s ever received.
“I feel seen by my team and hope every last one of them feels seen by me!” Gearhart said in the Tweet.
