E4E Relief expands executive team to enhance platform and increase impact
Courtney Ramey named the organization’s first Chief Product Officer, John Liu becomes its first Chief Technology Officer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – E4E Relief, the leading provider of employee and stakeholder relief around the world, recently added two senior-level, tech-focused executives to its team to enhance its technology and improve user experience across the organization: Courtney Ramey joined the organization as E4E Relief’s first Chief Product Officer. John Liu joined this month as E4E Relief’s first Chief Technology Officer.

The new executive hires cement E4E Relief’s commitment to innovation in the industry it pioneered more than 20 years ago, in the aftermath of 9/11. The strategic investment reflects a commitment to providing the most innovative, efficient and enriching user experience for companies and their employees, as well as to expanding the suite of products available to companies looking to support their human capital in unique and powerful ways.

“At E4E Relief, we recognize the vital role technology plays in allowing us to support companies in providing critical financial relief to their employees worldwide. These two roles – CTO and CPO – are not ones you often see in the world of philanthropy, and we believe that presents us with a tremendous opportunity: to help our clients make a greater impact in their communities around the world while contributing to the well-being of their organizations as a whole,” E4E Relief CEO Holly Welch Stubbing said in a statement.

Courtney Ramey has been driving growth and operational efficiency for tech-enabled organizations for 20 years. She joined E4E Relief from Jabian Consulting, where she served as the executive director of the firm’s Charlotte office and played an integral role in its growth from 20 to 150 employees across a national footprint. As Chief Product Officer at E4E Relief, her work focuses on two core areas: enhancing the organization’s core product offering while developing new solutions to support conscious companies looking for impactful ways to help their employees and other stakeholders who experience unexpected hardships and disasters.

"There are a growing number of client disasters and hardships impacting individuals every year," Ramey said in a statement, "This role and the stellar team at E4E Relief give me the opportunity to take our solution and all that we have been able to offer in global grantmaking to the next level in order to meet the growing needs of our exceptional clients."

John Liu has more than 20 years’ experience in the world of technology and software-as-aservice (SaaS). Most recently, Liu served as Chief Technology Officer at Bloomerang, a community-focused nonprofit donor management SaaS platform built to deliver a better giving experience and help nonprofit organizations sustain and thrive. In his role at E4E Relief, he oversees the engineering and information technology functions and contributes to the evolution and scale of the institution as a whole.

“This new role at E4E Relief affords me the fortuity of leveraging my extensive technical experience and acumen and intersecting it with philanthropy to further the organization’s mission of greater global impact. There’s no greater sense of purpose for me,” Liu said in a statement. “Working with this amazing team, I am excited to support some of the world’s largest and most impactful companies in the altruistic work of providing relief to stakeholders during their greatest times of need.”

E4E Relief is looking to make additional hires in 2023 to support the product and technology functions of the business and contribute to future growth and impact. Interested candidates are encouraged to follow us on LinkedIn for the most up-to-date opportunities.
