Greg Waldorf

Greg Waldorf has had a passion for both technology and business ever since he started a software development company at age 13. Through his many years of experience as an entrepreneur, executive, and investor, he has a strong understanding of the growth company lifecycle from the founding of a business all the way through the leadership challenges of building a high scale company.

Greg spent more than 11 years working with eHarmony where he became the company’s founding investor in 2000. Through the early years of the company’s growth, he was a very active advisor and board member working closely with the company’s founders, culminating in his appointment as CEO in 2006. During the last five years, Waldorf drove a global expansion of the company into new markets both domestically and in 15 countries worldwide.

In addition to operating a highly profitable business with more than $1 billion of revenue during his tenure, eHarmony has made a very positive impact in the lives of its subscribers. According to research from Harris Interactive, 542 Americans marry on an average day after meeting through eHarmony, nearly 5% of new marriages in the United States.

Greg was a founding member of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Management Board, is currently on the Board of Overseers of Hoover Institution at Stanford University, and serves on the Board of the John Wayne Cancer Institute at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica. He holds an M.B.A. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and a B.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles.
