Chad Cohen is resigning from his position as chief financial officer (CFO) of online real estate listing behemoth Zillow, effective Aug. 7, in order to pursue other business interests, the company announced.
‘Chad has made meaningful contributions to Zillow during his nine years here,’ says Spencer Rascoff, CEO of Zillow, in a release. ‘In 2006, I hired Chad as our first corporate controller when I was Zillow's first CFO. During his tenure, Chad has built an excellent team that has implemented tight financial controls and efficient processes that have allowed us to scale through Zillow's IPO, our rapid growth and our acquisition of Trulia and establishment of Zillow Group. He has left us with a strong foundation and an excellent team to see us through this next phase of our growth. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.’
Zillow Group is conducting a search for a new CFO, and Cohen will remain CFO through second quarter earnings and the 10-Q filing.
