Several founding members of G2 Crowd, a B2B software review platform, return to leadership roles in the company after spending time away to pursue opportunities elsewhere. Co-founder Godard Abel takes the title of CEO after a seven-year hiatus during which he successfully founded and sold two startups. Tim Handorf, acting CEO prior to Abel’s return, moves to lead the business’s engineering, product, design research and culture sectors as president. The third original band member to make a triumphant return is co-founder Matt Gorniak, filling the role of chief revenue officer after departing from his role as SVP at Salesforce.
