Don Faul is the CEO of CrossFit, the world’s most effective program for improving health and performance through nutrition and exercise. Prior to joining CrossFit in August 2022, Don served as CEO at Athos, a next generation smart clothing company focused on building better athletes. Before Athos, Don held leadership roles at multiple Fortune 500 companies including Pinterest, where he led community outreach, international growth, and business partnerships as head of operations; Facebook, where he built and led the company’s global user, developer, and payments and risk operations teams as vice president of online operations; and Google, where he built and managed the operations supporting merchants using Google’s commerce and payments products.
Don started his career as a Marine Infantry Officer, serving as a Platoon Commander with 1st Light Armored Battalion and 1st Force Reconnaissance Company. Don completed combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq before leaving active duty in 2003. Don graduated with Honors from the United States Naval Academy with a BS in Systems Engineering and received his MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Don currently sits on the board of Nuru International, a nonprofit focused on battling extreme poverty through sustainable development efforts, and More Perfect Union, a veteran-led organization focused on civic education, leadership development, and community service to bring Americans together. In his free time, Don enjoys reading, being a soccer dad, and (obviously) doing CrossFit.
