Jay Sullivan is known for his often public appearances while at Mozilla. He was made interim CEO of the company for a very short duration. Sullivan has once again made his way into news headlines, not because of any achievement at Mozilla, but because his decision to join Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN). As per the reports, he will join Groupon as the Senior Vice President of consumer products.
Insights On Matter:
Sullivan will look after the tech products, website and mobile applications for the company. Reports claim that he will be based out of Palo Alto. His immediate reporting manager will be Groupon’s Chief Technology Officer Sri Viswanath. He is not the only addition to Groupon’s senior management team. As per the reports, the company has decided to appoint Carol Campagnolo as the new Senior Vice President of Human Resource department.
Groupon’s Senior Management is delighted to appoint both the leaders in their respective roles. Company’s CEO Eric Lefkofsky stated that both Sullivan and Campagnolo would prove to be great additions to the senior management team of Groupon. The competition has crossed all the boundaries and having such candidates in the senior management team will ensure that Groupon can take the advantage of prevailing market conditions in the best way possible.
Departure of senior management employees has been a trend at Groupon lately and a great challenge, too. One of Sullivan’s predecessors is Jeff Holden, who recently joined Uber as the Product Head. The other person named Parker Braille, who headed products in Groupon Inc (NASDAQ:GRPN), left the company within two months’ time and started working independently. Not only the VPs and SVPs have left the company in the recent times, but its Co-Founder Andrew Mason also part his way recently.
