Groupon has announced that it has appointed Colin Bodell as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO), ending a two-year term where the role has remained unfilled.

“Groupon’s rapidly evolving marketplace presents some unique engineering opportunities, and the long-term potential for the platform is impressive,” Bodell said. “The talent across the organization - particularly the commitment to excellence on the product and engineering teams - allow us to build even more amazing experiences for customers and merchants.”

Previous to his new appointment with Groupon, Bodell worked for American Eagle Outfitters where he also acted as its CTO, in addition to having served as CTO for Time Inc. and held a number of senior engineering positions at Amazon.

In his new role, Bodell will be expected to play a leading role in the company’s global engineering efforts that take place across three continents.

“As Groupon’s marketplace continues to grow, we’re excited to bring on an engineering leader in Colin who can evolve our platform and help capture the immense opportunity in local,” said Rich Williams, CEO of Groupon. “Colin’s experience leading global engineering teams, building world-class software and deserved reputation as a strong advocate for diversity in engineering make him a tremendous fit to help lead Groupon’s continued success.”

Bodell’s appointment is the latest in a string of new leadership announcements at Groupon, with Deb Wahl having joined the Board of Directors this month and Steve Krenzer being named as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO).
