Fiona O’Donnell McCarthy
Fiona is a principal at True. For more than a decade, she has partnered with founders to drive product innovation and help them to create the futures they envision. Her experience spans product management, strategy, and business development for both consumer and B2B companies.
Most recently, Fiona was the VP of product for direct-to-consumer food company Daily Harvest, where she built and led teams responsible for the digital customer experience, data products, and internal business systems. Prior, she was the VP of product for mobile product development agency Prolific Interactive (acquired by The We Company in 2019).
Fiona’s early career focused on creating engaging mobile experiences as consumer and enterprise behaviors shifted to smartphones. She was a product manager and then the head of strategy and business development for women’s fashion e-tailer ModCloth (acquired by Wal-Mart in 2017). She also led product management and strategy for the mobile-focused SaaS commerce platform Handshake (acquired by Shopify in 2019).
Fiona studied human biology and published research on cognitive development at Stanford University, which influenced her distinct perspective on how technology shapes human behavior and vice versa. She accredits her competitive swimming career, which led her to Olympic Trials in 2008, for igniting her curiosity around breakthroughs in human performance — and how innovation can bolster wellness.
