Twitter’s VP of variety as well as addition Jeffrey Siminoff is leaving the business at the end of the month as well as its primary personnels workplace Renee Atwood has actually currently left, TechCrunch has actually verified.
” Renee has actually left the business for individual factors,” a Twitter speaker informed TechCrunch. “We thank her for her payments throughout her time at Twitter as well as desire her all the very best in the future.”
Atwood signed up with Twitter in August 2016 from Uber, where she was worldwide head of individuals as well as areas. Twitter Chief Executive Officer Jack Dorsey sent out a note around the business allowing staff members understand about Siminoff’s future departure, one resource accustomed to the scenario informed me. The interior messaging around Siminoff was that he is leaving on his independency, however that appears to be up in arms with exactly what individuals on Siminoff’s group think, the resource claimed.
Twitter employed Siminoff from Apple, where he was the supervisor of around the world addition as well as variety, in December 2015 to change Janet Van Huysse as vice head of state of variety as well as addition. At the time of the news, some individuals were cynical of that Twitter employed a white guy to lead its variety as well as addition initiatives.
These leaves come soon after Twitter revealed its 2016 variety record, which revealed Twitter was making some progression around the hiring of underrepresented minorities. It’s unclear if Siminoff as well as Atwood’s separations belong, however the timing is fascinating, to state the least.
