Surdan has held a variety of executive-level roles at high-growth private and public technology companies. He has built outstanding product and technology teams at innovative companies including Endurance International, Constant Contact and National Leisure Group, an online travel company that he helped grow from $80 million to $900 million in revenue. As an accomplished industry leader with a forward-looking approach to product innovation and governance, Surdan will serve as an essential resource toward furthering Diligent’s corporate strategy.

Serving over 12,000 organizations and 400,000 users worldwide with tools that can be accessed centrally through the Governance Cloud, Diligent proudly introduces Surdan’s appointment as a testament to its unrelenting mission of broadening clients’ ability to digitize their governance responsibilities.
