ExpressVPN and the broader Kape Technologies Digital Privacy Division are excited to announce that Michael Truong has joined our team as Chief Product Officer.
Truong brings an incredible depth of experience as a product leader. Most recently, he was Group Head of Product & Analytics at Grab, one of Asia’s largest and most successful technology companies. There, he led a team of hundreds of product managers and data analysts, delivering products and services used by over 32 million users monthly. Prior to Grab, he was an early employee of Uber leading multiple teams to help scale the product and business to hundreds of cities worldwide. His career in tech spans more than 20 years across the globe in Canada, the United States, and Singapore, starting in video games as a Software Engineer and a Producer, before he moved on to co-found a startup building educational apps for children, where one of his apps was inducted into the iTunes Hall of Fame and he earned iTunes Editor’s Choice honors ten times for ten different apps.
“Michael is an experienced business leader and strategic product manager with a proven track record of product-led growth for global technology brands. He will be integral to our leadership team as we continue to build a safer, freer internet, and further drive profitable growth,” said Dan Pomerantz, ExpressVPN co-founder, Kape Privacy Division co-GM, and Kape Non-Executive Director.
Truong said, “Digital privacy and security are top of mind for everyone, especially as we’re all spending increasingly more time online professionally in hybrid work environments as well as personally at home with our loved ones. With some of the leading privacy brands in its portfolio, Kape is at the forefront of serving the massive growth in this need for digital privacy protection.”
“Personally, I’ve been a happy customer of ExpressVPN for years,” added Truong. “With the TrustedServer technology and their audited policy of not recording any connection or activity logs, it’s clear that the team here has set itself apart with an unwavering commitment to protecting the privacy of customers. And with the recent launches of the Aircove router and the Keys password manager, the team is setting the pace in the industry to satisfy the fast-evolving needs of customers. It’s an exhilarating space experiencing tremendous growth, and I’m incredibly excited to deliver even more ways for our customers to secure their digital lives.”
As part of its growth, ExpressVPN and the Kape Privacy Division are hiring across all functions for its globally distributed team, including in its Singapore hub, where Truong will be based.
