DOCU Stock: DocuSign Picks Google Marketing Honcho As New Chief Executive

DocuSign (DOCU) on Thursday named Google’s Allan Thygesen as its new chief executive. DOCU stock rose in after-market trading on the announcement.


Former DocuSign CEO Dan Springer resigned in June following a string of disappointing earnings reports. The maker of electronic signature software had thrived during the coronavirus pandemic. But DocuSign’s growth slowed sharply as in-person business meetings resumed.

At Alphabet‘s (GOOGL) Google unit, Thygesen most recently served as president, Americas & Global Partners, leading the company’s more than $100 billion advertising business across North and South America. Earlier, he was president of Google Marketing Solutions.

DOCU stock rose 0.6% to 54.31 in extended trading on the stock market today. Shares ended the regular session down 1.1% to 54.
