Groupon taps new SVP of product

Groupon has named Parker Barrile as its SVP of product. He will lead Groupon’s global product teams focused on Web, mobile and design.

“Parker brings tremendous value to Groupon both as an entrepreneur and an established, effective product leader in global tech organizations,” said Groupon CEO Eric Lefkofsky. “He will help us evolve our local commerce platform to further engage our customers and help make Groupon a premier online shopping destination.”

Barrile joins Groupon from LinkedIn where he was VP of product management and led teams for several of the company’s core monetization products including talent solutions, premium subscriptions and the payments platform.

“Groupon has an impressive track record of product innovation and enormous potential,” Barrile said. I’m excited about the opportunity to revolutionize commerce in a way that empowers merchants and delights consumers.”

Prior to his five-year tenure at LinkedIn, Barrile founded and served as the CEO of Predictify, a community-based prediction platform where members could make and vote on predictions regarding current events. He has also held roles at Google and Bain & Company.

Barrile will join Groupon’s senior leadership team and will report to CEO Eric Lefkofsky. He will be based in Groupon’s Palo Alto office, beginning in September.
