Match Group CEO Mandy Ginsberg is featured in a new interview with the Wall Street Journal. The piece focuses on leadership, maintaining a work / life balance and dating advice.
Ginsberg says her top tip for singles is to be true to themselves, because putting across a curated version of your personality is unsustainable.
On her own routine, she says she gets around ten hours of sleep on weekends, but only around two hours during the week. Being a working parent is “hard”, and she tries not to drop the ball on too many occasions.
Turning to business, new hires at Match Group should have “work ethic and integrity”, but they should avoid “selling without real results”, says the CEO.
The company endeavours never to rest, and to behave like an underdog despite being the market leader. This involves a focus on innovation, which helps Match Group brands to stay ahead of the competition.
When running meetings, leaders should have a very specific aim. They should moderate and make sure that participants all stay on topic.
In August, Mandy Ginsberg sold 63% of her MTCH stock for a total of $5,275,184.50. The shares sold at $49.37, and have since fallen to $40.12.
Earlier this week, Bumble’s motion to dismiss Match Group’s patent infringement case fell flat in a Texas court. The judge ruled that Tinder’s “innovations improve existing interface technology.”
