We’re excited to welcome Lydia Varmazis as our new VP of Product! Lydia comes to Checkr with over 20 years of product experience at some of the world’s most prominent companies. Most recently, Lydia served as SVP of Product at Westfield Retail Solutions and has held senior leadership roles at Paypal, where she managed the identity platform, Ning, and Adobe, where she moved Creative Suite from a desktop model to the Creative Cloud.
As Checkr’s VP of Product, Lydia will have responsibility across the entire product function and lead product strategy. This includes development of the product roadmap, growing and mentoring the product team, and increasing collaboration with engineering and other key teams. “When I was first introduced to Checkr, two things really stood out to me: first, the incredible impact and potential of the product itself, and second, the level of innovation across the entire company,” said Lydia. “I’m looking forward to working with the team to help Checkr achieve the next level of product innovation and customer success.”
“Lydia’s been the driving force behind the success of some of the most transformative products,” states Daniel Yanisse, CEO and Co-founder. “I’m thrilled to add her decades of experience, particularly in identity and security, to help lead the next phase of Checkr’s innovation and growth.”
