LOS ANGELES, June 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Evite, the world's leading online invitation service, today announced two senior leadership hires, Jason Woo and David Grant. In their new positions as president and vice president of product, respectively, they will be working to drive Evite's strategy and business direction as the company moves into an aggressive post-pandemic growth phase.
"2021 will be a year of extreme growth for Evite as we exit the pandemic, and I am thrilled that Jason and David have joined the Evite team during this transformative time," said Victor Cho, CEO of Evite. "We are living through the once-in-a-generation creation of a new reality in terms of social gathering and social behavior, and we need to ensure that our consumer value-proposition and revenue model are aligned to that new world. Jason and David have the perfect blend of experiences to help us do just that."

“I have always loved Evite and what it stands for- human connectivity . This is especially important after the past year we all have experienced, where isolation was frequent and common,” said Jason. “It is incredibly rare that you find a beloved brand that can help its hundreds of millions of users to reconnect with loved ones after such a difficult time. I really haven’t seen many organizations with this kind of opportunity to directly help its users in such a meaningful way. ”
