We are fortunate to have acquired a rapidly growing business whose leaders have capabilities we can leverage across the broader SurveyMonkey portfolio.”

As Senior Vice President, SurveyMonkey for Business Product, Mr. Norall will lead development of the company’s business solutions. With more than two decades of leadership as a serial entrepreneur and operator at SaaS and enterprise software companies, Norall brings deep expertise including product, engineering, sales, marketing, and customer success to the team.

He brings over 20 years of sales experience to the company, with past positions including founding two startups and working in sales leadership positions in enterprise technology and SaaS businesses.
