Vimeo CEO Anjali Sud: How I’ve found success leaving my comfort zone
Anjali Sud has always sought opportunities that seem intimidating. That inspired her to leave Flint, Michigan at 14 for the elite Massachusetts boarding school Phillips Academy on a scholarship. And it led her to become the CEO of Vimeo at 34. Vimeo is an ad-free video platform for filmmakers, and the videos on Vimeo are generally more highly produced than those on YouTube. Sud worked at Vimeo for three years before getting the CEO job in July 2017. It was an opportunity she told me she wasn’t expecting — and so that’s why she had to take it. Sud told us how she had a new vision for Vimeo as she led its creators team.
