Freshworks CEO Girish Mathrubhootham would sell approximately 2.4 million shares worth $92.7 million as part of the liquidity event. Jose Morales, the company’s chief revenue officer, and Srinivasagopalan Ramamurthy, the company’s chief product officer, will both sell shares worth more than $11.5 million.
