Here we grow again! Your favorite all-in-one Employee Experience platform has expanded its leadership team with four key executive hires.

Over the last six months, Jo Williams (Chief Financial Officer), Tony Capasso (Chief Customer Officer), Mike Couvillion (Chief Technology Officer), and Casey Carey (Chief Marketing Officer) joined our executive team to support continued growth and strengthen our robust employee experience offerings and go-to-market strategies.

As we build our company for the future, I’m thrilled to have these four leaders join our team to tackle the next stage of growth,” said Paul Pellman, CEO of Kazoo.
“Our focus for the next 18 months is to strengthen and scale our platform in the market and their leadership will be pivotal as we enhance our technology and the user experience to drive revenue — all while building and expanding our customer relationships.”

Meet our new executive team

Jo Williams, Kazoo’s CFO, will play a strategic role in increasing revenue for the company while ensuring new business initiatives are profitable.

Originally hailing from the UK, Jo Williams joins Kazoo from Mitratech, where she served as Controller and VP of Finance and integrated eight acquisitions and supported two successful exits. Prior to Miratech, Jo spent 15 years in various financial and strategic planning roles in corporate, business unit, and global operations both in the US and internationally.

As Kazoo’s CCO, Tony Capasso will be tasked with enhancing current customer relationships while also bringing in new business.

Tony was most recently General Manager of ShipEngine, a commerce API platform start-up, and before that served in revenue leadership roles at two of the fastest-growing tech companies in Austin – Bazaarvoice and Civitas. In both of these organizations, Tony led the companies to surpass growth goals while unifying the go-to-market organization across sales, marketing, customer success, delivery, and support.

CTO Mike Couvillion will work to enhance products and services by strengthening our platform with updates to Kazoo’s UI/UX and enhanced people analytics capabilities.

As a certified network and systems engineer with over 20 years of experience in software development, Mike has served in executive technical roles at Symantec, Dominion Enterprises, Drillinginfo, and Alchemy Systems before joining the team at Kazoo. In his previous positions, Mike led software development, database programming, and IT infrastructure. He also served as an advisor on the iTexico Board of Directors, where he provided the company with technical and business advice across their technological operations.

CMO Casey Carey will build a strong marketing team designed to drive strategic growth for the company through demand generation, corporate communications, product marketing, and sales enablement.

Casey has held a variety of marketing roles over the past 15 years, most notably as the head of marketing, advertiser and publisher platforms at Google, where he advanced their growth marketing, mobile app marketing, and supply-side ad-tech programs. Casey also previously served as VP of product marketing at Marketo, then moved to head of go-to-market strategy at Adobe when it acquired Marketo, where he was tasked with integrating Marketo’s products into Adobe’s Experience Cloud offering.
