I am thrilled to announce that we have four new leaders joining us on our mission of empowering small business success around the world. Please help us in giving a warm GoSite welcome to Mehul Asher, Alex Barnett, and Puneet Kumar who have joined the Product & Growth team in various leadership roles. These new leaders are bringing a wealth of knowledge to the GoSite family, and we want to take a moment to introduce them!
Introducing Mehul Asher, Head of Product Management, FinTech
Mehul brings a great deal of experience working with SMBs and 3rd party app developers. He was instrumental at Intuit in launching a whole new and simplified developer experience including access to a whole new set of payment APIs for 3rd party app developers. At PayPal, he led the adaptive Payments API product processing upwards of $1B in payment volume every quarter.
Most recently at Trov (insurtech startup), he was wearing many hats - leading their embedded insurance API, offering and managing partnerships with a major bank and a commercial van manufacturer. Prior to Trov, he was leading the payments platform at Lending Club - his team was responsible for all the money movement to the tune of $1.8B every quarter.
Mehul works out of New York and has hit the ground running driving various product initiatives. He has 2 boys (10 and 6) and is actively involved in coaching their soccer teams and is trying to enjoy the beautiful weather while it lasts!
Introducing Alex Barnett, Head of Platform and Product Partnerships
Alex comes with 15+ years of developer relations leadership experience with world-class enterprise technology companies such as Intuit, RMS and Microsoft, as well as PaaS and web development start-ups. In various roles, he has been responsible for business, technical & product strategy, planning and execution of developer marketing, platform evangelism, technical and business education, and technical support and partner success.
In his last role at Intuit, Alex led Intuit’s developer platform business, including product management and development, developer engineering support, recruitment, evangelism and education, and developer-facing programs. He also led strategic product partnerships such as Bill.com, ADP and PayChex, Square, and PayPal integrations with QBO.
Originally from London, UK, Alex now lives in Menlo Park, CA with his wife Daisy and combined families of 4 kids - William, William(!), Carl, Sarah, and puppy Chelsea. Passionate about cricket (he was a pro cricketer for Middlesex and Lancanshire back in the day), both listening to and creating music (anyone know what “modular synthesis” is??), and of course, cocktails and steaks!
Introducing Puneet Kumar, Head of Engineering
Puneet comes to us most recently from SquareTrade, an Allstate company that went from being a Series B to a billion dollar acquisition where he built the team and the SaaS engines that bring ideas to life and fuel growth.
Puneet is an engineering and technology leader - With over 20+ years of experience, the last six years were spent at SquareTrade in the warranty/insurance industry covering phone and smart devices to big appliances. He also worked on merchants’ integration for Walmart, Target, The Home Depot, and integration with small repair businesses for servicing claims. He grew and led their B2B2C platforms and products, supporting fullstack, mobile, backend, database and data engineering, trust & safety and CI/CD.
Puneet lives in the East Bay Area and was born and raised in India. He went to University of Pune, India and earned his Master’s degree in Computer Science. He has two girls, ages 17 and 11. He’s all about catching up on movies, web series with family, road tripping, listening to Bollywood music, and watching all kinds of cricket matches.
These leaders are joining us at an exciting and pivotal time as we continue to grow rapidly across all markets. At GoSite, we are set on acquiring impeccably talented and motivated individuals like Mehul, Alex, and Puneet to help serve small businesses.
