OpenAI, the creator of the widely popular ChatGPT, announced the appointments of Sarah Friar as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Kevin Weil as Chief Product Officer (CPO). Sarah Friar brings extensive experience from her previous leadership roles at NextDoor, Block (previously Square), Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, and Salesforce. Her track record includes guiding both NextDoor and Square through their public offerings, although OpenAI has tempered speculation about a potential IPO. Kevin Weil, formerly the president of product and business at Planet Labs and having held senior product roles at Instagram, Novi at Facebook, and Twitter, joins as the CPO. OpenAI CEO Sam Altman expressed confidence that these additions would facilitate scaling operations and strategic growth, equipping the team to meet the needs of an expanding customer base and a complex global environment.
