Planet Welcomes Ann Mather to Board of Directors


Today the Planet team gets stronger. I am delighted to announce that Ann Mather has joined Planet’s board as our first Independent Board Director.

Ann brings to Planet a wealth of experience and knowledge from decades spent with some of the world’s most dynamic companies. She currently serves on the boards of Google, Netflix , MGM, Shutterfly, and Arista Networks, and formerly served as CFO at Pixar.


When speaking with Ann I knew she would be a fantastic fit: she loves our mission, and I have already learned a great deal from our interactions. Her deep domain expertise in finance and international business is perfectly suited for Planet’s current stage of growth.

“The breadth and scope of Planet’s mission is staggering, and the humanitarian and commercial impact of daily, global imaging is ground-breaking. I absolutely believe in the vision of Will and his team and I couldn’t be more excited to join them for this unprecedented journey.” – Ann Mather

Prior to Pixar, Ann held executive positions at production studio Village Roadshow Pictures, The Walt Disney Company, and Buena Vista Theatrical Division.

It’s an honor to have Ann join our Board of Directors and I’m excited to work with her.
