Mestel’s appointment follows the company’s first acquisition and product expansion to become a website experience platform

Webflow, the leading visual development platform for building powerful websites without writing code, announced that Craig Mestel has joined the company as its first Chief Financial Officer.

For the last ten years, Webflow has enabled teams, from small and medium businesses to large enterprises, to build, host and manage their business critical websites. In April, the company announced the acquisition of Intellimize, an AI-driven website personalization and optimization platform to extend Webflow’s multi-product portfolio. Webflow’s website experience platform combines visual site building, a powerful content management system (CMS), hosting, personalization, and optimization, allowing marketing teams to innovate quickly — all without having to rely on a team of engineers or IT specialists.
