Digital CRE platform, Truss, hires Groupon exec to lead product team

Truss, a Chicago-based online marketplace for commercial real estate, has hired Andrew Lisy as its vice president of product. Lisy will lead the product team at Truss, including its next-generation commercial real estate platform for brokers, Truss CRE.

“Andrew’s track record leading strong user experiences at Groupon, along with his passion for growing a marketplace, makes him the right fit for Truss,” said Tom Smith, co-founder and CEO of Truss. “His expertise aligns with our mission to continue growing our marketplace as the leading platform for business owners looking for commercial space.”

Prior to Truss, Lisy was the director of product at Groupon where he led supply and merchant experience, bringing thousands of small businesses from around the world into the marketplace. Lisy holds bachelor’s degrees in computer science and finance from MIT. He also serves as an educational counselor to prospective MIT students.

“I’m excited to join the dynamic and forward-thinking team at Truss, particularly because they’re leading as the tech-driven solution for small business owners looking for office space or coworking space,” said Lisy. “Truss is the only platform that offers price transparency on every listing plus the option to compare coworking and traditional office space options.”
