Co-Founder and Co-CEO
Doug Hirsch, (co-Founder and co-CEO of GoodRx), is on a mission to lower the cost of prescriptions in America. In 2010, Doug received an alarmingly expensive prescription from a doctor, and decided to shop around for a lower price. He quickly realized how helpless Americans were, with no easy way for patients to find prices and discounts for their prescriptions. So, in 2011, Doug launched GoodRx with co-founders Trevor Bezdek and Scott Marlette. To date, GoodRx has helped millions of Americans save over $3 billion on their prescriptions.
Earlier in his career, Doug spent 10 years at Yahoo, Inc., where he was among the first 30 employees. He conceived and managed the earliest online communities including Yahoo! Mail, GeoCities, Yahoo! Groups, Yahooligans, Yahoo! Personals, Yahoo! Chat, and more. Later, as General Manager of Yahoo! Entertainment, he was responsible for Yahoo! Movies, Yahoo! TV, Yahoo! Entertainment and a joint-venture with Paramount. In 2005, he joined Facebook as Vice President of Product, where he built Facebook Photos and other products. After Facebook, Doug founded DailyStrength, the web’s largest community for people facing health and life challenges. DailyStrength was acquired in 2008 by HSW International. Doug is a magna cum laude graduate of Tufts University and lives in Santa Monica with his family, where GoodRx is headquartered.
