New York-based home care startup company Hometeam has once again expanded its executive team, with the addition of two heavy-hitters from the retail and technology space.
Matt Marcotte has been named President, while Julie Stern has been named chief technology officer—both new positions for Hometeam. Marcotte comes from the retail industry, including executive roles at both Tory Bruch and Apple.
The appointments follow other high profile hires, including CFO Tom Etergino, formerly of Refinery29.
The development signals Hometeam’s growth in its current markets—New York City and New Jersey—though the company declined to disclose its market share or revenue.
Prior to joining Hometeam and moving to health care, Marcotte doubled Apple’s retail presence in North America, growing the retail team from 10,000 employees to 25,000. As executive vice president at Tory Burch, Marcotte led the business to five times its global retail presence. Looking ahead, Marcotte hopes to execute growth at Hometeam.
“Many companies will grow from a top line perspective, but the ability to scale an organization and keep culture service prop and value while you do grow is a very hard thing,” Marcotte told HHCN. “It’s not just growth for growth’s sake, [it’s] making sure that we can continue to be a differentiator in the industry, and hopefully, as we do grow, change the conversation of what it means to age in america.”
Prior to joining Hometeam as CTO, Stern was CTO at Accolade where she oversaw all aspects of technology and product operations. She was also previously co-founder and CTO of konciergeMD, which was acquired by Accolade.
