Mindbody appointed Fritz Lanman as its new CEO, effective Sept. 3, 2022. Lanman, who is a seasoned wellness and technology executive, will succeed Josh McCarter, who will transition to the Mindbody Board of Directors.
Lanman was CEO of ClassPass before the Mindbody-ClassPass acquisition, and currently serves as president of ClassPass and the Mindbody Marketplace. He is a Yale graduate and started his career at Microsoft, where he held a number of product management and corporate strategy roles.
With Lanman's leadership, the company plans to accelerate the wellness industry's recovery from the impact of the pandemic by providing studios with the tools to help them grow and thrive, while driving more consumers to their businesses.
“It has been an honor leading Mindbody through the pandemic and bringing together the two leading wellness businesses, Mindbody and ClassPass, with our acquisition of ClassPass last October,” said McCarter. “It’s the right time to pass the baton to Fritz, who will lead Mindbody through this next chapter. Fritz’s tech and entrepreneurial background and his CEO experience make him the perfect fit to lead Mindbody and ClassPass.”
