In addition to hiring Kelly as Chief Commercial Officer, Carrot has promoted several senior leaders to chief officer roles alongside Tammy Sun, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, and Asima Ahmad, MD, MPH, Co-founder, and Chief Medical Officer.

“The demand for fertility and family-forming benefits has never been greater than it is today,” said Sun. “We’re proud of the team we’ve built at Carrot to meet this increasing demand, including these strong leaders who have significantly contributed to Carrot scaling as our customer and member base continues to grow globally.”

"Our mission has always been to make fertility healthcare accessible for everyone beginning in the workplace," added Dr. Ahmad. "From clinical care navigation to engineering, product, customer success, and beyond, we've built a world-class team that's hard at work creating more equitable access to fertility care and family-forming options for our members."

In this role, Quinn will continue to ensure the engagement, success, retention, and growth of Carrot’s more than 300 customers in more than 60 countries. Quinn is a trusted advisor and executive strategy leader with deep expertise in operations management, customer success and retention, and sales strategy and execution.
