Reddit Snares Google’s Pali Bhat As First-Ever CPO

Reddit has appointed its first-ever Chief Product Officer, with Google’s former VP of Product Management and Design Pali Bhat joining the company.

With 15 years of experience over consumer services, developer platforms, fintech, and cloud, Bhat will help create tools that build a sense of community on Reddit, the company says.

Bhat will report directly to Reddit’s CEO Steve Huffman.

“Pali is as passionate as we are when it comes to fostering community and belonging,” said Huffman. “As a part of our leadership team, he’ll build on our critical work to offer new ways for people to contribute to endless conversations that encourage authentic human connection.”

Bhat explained his decision to join Reddit.

“I’ve long admired Reddit and am energized to build on the work the team does to help millions of people around the world,” he said.

“Being part of the Reddit team enables me to bring together my passions for community, creators, and technology platforms — and provides me a unique opportunity to contribute to Reddit as it scales its platform and expands its user community around the world.”

The news of Bhat’s appointment follows Reddit’s recent opening of its first office in the Southern Hemisphere here in Australia.
