Former Bainee Amanda Runner joins Glassdoor’s leadership

Glassdoor, a leading workplace review and job search site, has promoted former Bain & Company consultant Amanda Runner to senior vice president of marketing.

In the role, Runner will head the firm’s marketing function, overseeing B2B marketing, consumer marketing, product marketing, and marketing operations. Runner, who joined Glassdoor in 2017, brings 15 years of experience in business development, strategy, operations, and marketing. She will remain based in the company’s San Francisco headquarters.

She previously led Glassdoor’s B2B marketing team, and before that was a senior director in the business operations division.

“I am very excited about stepping into this new role,” Runner said in an interview on Glassdoor’s website. “We have a great marketing team at Glassdoor, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with folks across the team for the last three years. I’m excited now to be stepping up to lead the team and help the organization achieve ambitious goals as we step into the next chapter for Glassdoor.”Former Bainee Amanda Runner joins Glassdoor's leadershipPrior to Glassdoor, Runner spent seven years at management consulting firm Bain & Company, where she advised sales and marketing teams on growth strategy and go-to-market strategy. Runner latterly served as a manager at the prestigious strategy firm, working in the New York and San Francisco offices. She also previously interned at Goldman Sachs and Zagat.

Runner holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Northwestern University.

Runner was one of three recent executive promotions at Glassdoor which tipped the leadership team to more than 50% women. The firm also promoted Samantha Zupan to SVP of corporate communications and Bhawna Singh to CTO and SVP of engineering.

Glassdoor in May laid off 300 employees, or approximately 30% of its workforce, which is spread across five US offices and international locations in Ireland and Brazil. The cost-cutting measure was driven by a massive drop-off in revenue from the pandemic, according to Glassdoor CEO Christian Sutherland-Wong. The company makes much of its revenue from helping organizations recruit employees – and job postings have slowed considerably amid a faltering global economy.
