Margo Georgiadis Biography

Margaret "Margo" Georgiadis is an American business executive and the CEO of Ancestry, the global leader in family history and consumer genomics, harnesses the information found in family trees, historical records, and DNA to help people gain a new level of understanding about their lives. Ancestry has more than three million paying subscribers across its core Ancestry websites with an extensive collection of over 10 billion digitized historical records and has sold approximately 10 million AncestryDNA kits to date. Since 1996, users have created over 100 million family trees and 11 billion ancestor profiles on the Ancestry flagship site and its affiliated international websites.

Prior to Ancestry, Margaret Georgiadis was CEO of Mattel Inc. She took on the role in 2017, making her the second woman ever to hold this position at the company. According to Piper Jaffray analyst Stephanie Wissink, Georgiadis was selected for CEO (and member of the Board of Directors) in the hope of bringing “a fresh perspective on enterprise alignment and a female voice at the helm does reinvigorate the potential for a dramatic modernization of the Mattel operating model.” With this new position, the Fortune 500 company list of female executives increased to 28.

Georgiadis started her career in 1986 at McKinsey & Company where she was a business analyst for two years before leaving for Harvard Business School (HBS). In 1990 she returned from HBS to rejoin McKinsey & Company, where she was eventually promoted to partner. She left in 2004 for Discover Financial Services, where she was the Executive Vice President of Card Products and the Chief Marketing Officer until 2008. She played a key role in taking the company public, managing consumer and business credit cards, their E-business, and corporate marketing services. Her impact at the firm transformed it from three years of receivables declines, culminating in a sustained 4%+ of receivables growth and top industry margins with sales increasing more than 25% to $93B.

For nine months Georgiadis was Principal at Synetro Capital LLC in 2009. The next two years she spent as Vice President of Global Sales Operations at Google in charge of the firm’s strategies, sales operations and guiding the sales technology teams. She then moved to Groupon for five months as their COO. In 2011 she returned to Google where she was President, Americas, at Alphabet Inc., a position she held until her Mattel one.
