As Grammarly’s New CEO Rahul Roy-Chowdhury Will Introduce AI Integrated Writing Assistance Software

  • Currently, the global head of product, the Indian American's elevation coincides with the launch of the startup’s new AI product.

Rahul Roy-Chowdhury will take over as Grammarly’s CEO starting May 1, the company announced this week. The Indian American, who is the global head of product, will replace Brad Hoover, who will stay on as a board member.

In his new role, “he’ll lead an expanded team of executives that includes the newly created roles of chief technology officer, filled by Joe Xavier, and chief revenue officer, filled by Matt Rosenberg,” as reported by Bloomberg. 

The transition coincides with the April 1 launch of the startup’s new product, called GrammarlyGO. “It will analyze context to create and suggest wording for various scenarios based on a text’s level of formality and tone, Roy-Chowhury, who led the team behind the product, told Bloomberg. “The energy around AI is so palpable,” Roy-Chowdhury told the media company. “We’re seeing a groundswell of support for this problem for how we can communicate.”

In a company press release, Hoover noted that Roy-Chowhury’s “product and technology background is a tremendous asset,” to Grammarly, which is “a deeply technical, product-led company.” Describing his successor as being “well-positioned to help us navigate the path ahead,” Hoover described Roy-Chowhury as being “mission-driven and fiercely user-focused.”
