"Throughout my career, I've gravitated towards companies that are mission oriented and roles that gave me the opportunity to drive positive impact," said Coleman. "After spending time with Matt and the team at Omaze, I'm excited about the opportunity to continue the incredible growth the company has experienced and put my expertise to use further scaling this business, all while doing good in the world. What the team has built here over the last ten years is remarkable."
Most recently, Coleman was at Pinterest where he was the Head of Growth and International, responsible for global user growth. During his time there, he oversaw growth product, product operations, localization, product marketing, and content partnerships. Scott also served as board director for Pinterest Europe Limited and Pinterest's international entities.
Prior to Pinterest, Coleman spent over a decade at Google where he was responsible for new business development and product partnerships for Google Search and Maps, bringing new products to Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Europe.

Coleman developed customer support and sales teams in Brazil, Argentina, India and the United States to grow AdSense into a multi-billion dollar business.
"Scott is one of the rare talents who can go both broad and deep into tech, product, growth, marketing, and more and I couldn't be more excited for Scott to join," said Pohlson. "He has a reputation as a world-class leader and his track record helping Google and Pinterest scale internationally, will help set us up for our next stage of global impact."
