Casey Winters leads the acquisition product team at Pinterest, which focuses on increasing traffic to Pinterest and converting people into engaged Pinners. Casey has worked on various elements of the growth stack at Pinterest over the last couple of years, amidst massive growth and a shift toward an international first mindset. Even with this international mindset, he still can't understand French after decades of trying. Pinterest crossed 100 million monthly actives users in September 2015.
Prior to Pinterest, Casey was the first marketer at Grubhub, and built out most of the marketing channels there, including paid and organic search, offline marketing, email marketing, loyalty programs, and conversion optimization. During this time, Grubhub spread from three cities to over 500, and went public in April 2014. Casey is responsible for some of Grubhub's worst performing ads, but definitely not its best.
Prior to Grubhub, Casey worked for a few years at Classified Ventures on the Apartments.com, Homefinder.com, and RentalHomesPlus brands, working in various online marketing roles. He has a BBA in Marketing from Loyola University Chicago and an MBA from Chicago Booth, but he leaves that last part out when he talks to engineers. He blogs somewhat frequently at caseyaccidental.com, but still gets embarrassed when people read it.
