Massimo Arrigoni

CEO

LinkedIn profile

SaaS scale-up CEO with two decades of experience in product management. A practitioner of product-led growth for many years, and a believer in the Jobs To Be Done approach to understanding why customers buy products or services. Involved in Beefree’s startup-within-a-larger-corp since the beginning, when the project took off and grew to the point of requiring a full-time CEO, Massimo stepped down from his Head of Product role at the group level, and was happy to take on this role.

Prior to MailUp, Massimo co-founded and was CEO for many years at Early Impact, which developed a small business shopping cart system – ProductCart – and a recurring billing system – SubscriptionBridge. Before that, Massimo had product management roles in other software companies.
