SurveyMonkey, the online survey platform, named Bill Veghte as CEO on Tuesday, effective Aug. 3, and made him a board member. He succeeds Dave Goldberg, who died in a treadmill accident in May.
Goldberg expanded the company, which was named a CNBC Disruptor 50, from 12 employees to 450, and a $2 billion valuation.
Zander Lurie, who was named temporary executive after Goldberg's passing—and who was just named permanent chairman of the board—said Veghte's experience in consumer and enterprise markets makes him a good fit for the company.
This CEO appointment comes just a day after SurveyMonkey added two new board members: Goldberg's widow, Sheryl Sandberg, who is Facebook's COO; and David Ebersman, CEO of Lyra Health and formerly Facebook's CFO.
