“The more I learned about UserTesting’s approach and commitment to developing a world-class customer experience platform, it was easy to see why so many of the top global brands rely on them to create impactful customer experiences,” said van de Loo. “The opportunity to make such a meaningful contribution to the evolution of UserTesting and their growing platform is what drew me to this opportunity.”

Sabet brings to UserTesting more than two decades of experience driving growth in technology businesses, having led business and corporate development, legal, and strategic planning.

As Corporate Vice President, Business Development at Cadence, she led mergers and acquisitions, strategic transactions and venture investments, delivering tens of millions of dollars in incremental revenue. Sabet has been an operator in two early-stage startups: Coverity led the market in the automation of the identification of software vulnerabilities; Viblio pioneered automated tagging of user-generated videos using machine learning and computer vision.

“Having had the opportunity to evaluate a number of technology companies, I’ve come to understand that a relevant and even captivating customer experience is a powerful business differentiator. UserTesting is operating at the center of obtaining meaningful and relevant insights in order to deliver truly exceptional customer experiences,” said Mona Sabet. “My passion is helping companies continually evolve and grow and I’m thrilled to be joining UserTesting at such a transformative and exciting time in the company’s history.”

During his more than twenty-five-year career, Dillon has served as a senior executive of technology companies ranging from pre-IPO start-ups to global Fortune 500 companies. He most recently served as EVP, general counsel, and corporate secretary at Adobe where he was part of the executive team that transformed the company into one of the strongest performing digital experiences cloud subscription businesses. Prior to Adobe, he held executive level general counsel roles at Silver Springs Networks, where he helped prepare the company for its IPO and has held similar senior-level executive roles with Sun Microsystems.

“For most of my career, I’ve worked with organizations focused on data and analytics,” said Dillon, “Now, I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with a company that provides the insights behind the numbers. I understand the value and importance of being a customer-centric organization and UserTesting not only helps its customers achieve that goal, they live and breathe customer mindset every day.”

“While it’s satisfying to see such a strong performance to start the year, what’s most exciting are the opportunities that are ahead of us—to help even more companies make informed business decisions by empowering them with the human insights that will allow them to build better customer experiences at scale,” said Andy MacMillan, CEO of UserTesting. “We’re also very fortunate to be able to continue to add such exceptional executive talent with the addition of Kaj, Mona, and Mike to UserTesting’s C-suite and Board of Directors.”
