Instacart, the North American player in online grocery delivery, announced the addition of two new executives to its leadership team. Human resources executive and people leader Christina Hall has joined Instacart as the company's first Chief Human Resources Officer. Additionally, the company has named Ariel Bardin as Senior Vice President of Product.
These new leadership hires come as Instacart continues to build out its teams and scale to meet the increased consumer demand for its online grocery delivery and pickup services.
As Instacart's first Chief Human Resources Officer, Hall will help support the company's teams across North America with a focus on building a holistic people and talent strategy designed to attract, retain and develop employees. Hall brings to Instacart more than 20 years of experience advancing talent goals at tech companies. She most recently served as Chief People Officer at LinkedIn, and previously held key human resources roles at Facebook and Intuit. At Instacart, she will oversee the company's Human Resources, Recruiting, and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion functions.
Bardin comes to Instacart following more than 15 years at Google, where he most recently oversaw YouTube's full suite of creator products as Vice President of Product Management. Prior to YouTube, Bardin was responsible for product strategy and business development for Google Payments and spent nearly a decade as a leader for Google AdWords. Bardin joins Instacart on October 27 and will oversee the company's Consumer, Enterprise, and Advertising Product teams and development.
