Shar Dubey Joins ‘Fortive’ Board of Directors

Match Group CEO Shar Dubey has been added to the Board of Directors at Fortive, a technology holding company for a variety of leading global brands.

Fortive is headquartered in Washington and looks after subsidiaries in the field solutions, product realization, sensing technologies, transportation technologies, and franchise distribution industries.

Alan Spoon, Chairman of the Board at Fortive, said in a statement: “With her extensive experience and leadership in technology, operations, product development, competitive strategy and marketing, Shar will provide valuable insight and perspective as we continue to drive innovation and evolve our portfolio.”

CEO and President James Lico added: “Shar’s experience across the spectrum of technology leadership will be invaluable, including her proven ability to scale new technologies that significantly expand markets and deliver long term customer satisfaction.”

Dubey took over as Match Group CEO at the end of January after Mandy Ginsberg stepped down from the position for a variety of personal reasons.

The online dating company recently significantly expanded its own Board of Directors following the separation from IAC. ExecOnline CEO Stephen Bailey, the NBA’s executive president for digital media Melissa Brenner, entrepreneur Wendi Murdoch and actor Ryan Reynolds all joined Match Group at the beginning of July.

Tinder, Match Group’s flagship brand, appointed former President and CEO of CBS Interactive Jim Lanzone as the new CEO just over two weeks ago.
