Upwork President and CEO Hayden Brown recognizes that Covid-19 has changed work forever, proving old models of work are in need of — and capable of — change. Brown and her team have spent this transformational period innovating Upwork’s products and expanding from offering a single product — Talent Marketplace, its crown jewel — to becoming a multi-product company, with offerings such as Project Catalog and Talent Scout. Under Brown’s leadership, Upwork has also improved its execution, accelerated business growth and defined its industry category as the “work marketplace” to better encapsulate the true breadth and depth of what happens on its platform every day.
