Snapchat’s senior VP of engineering, Tim Sehn, leaves company
The Snap executive in charge of all its engineering
efforts, Tim Sehn, is leaving.
- Sehn was one of Snap’s highest-paid execs.
He’s the fourth exec to leave Snap since its initial
public offering earlier this year.
Tim Sehn, Snap Inc.’s senior vice president of engineering, is
leaving the company,
The Information reported on Tuesday.
Sehn joined the
Snapchat-marker in 2013 and oversaw all of the company’s
engineering efforts to date. He was one of Snap’s highest-paid
execs and sold shares totaling roughly $27
million this year.
A Snap spokesperson declined to confirm or comment on Sehn’s
departure. Sehn couldn’t be immediately reached for comment. Snap
is expected to file information about its third-quarter earnings
with the SEC on Wednesday and could disclose the departure then.
Jerry Hunter will replace Sehn, according to The Information.
Hunter had served under Sehn as Snap’s vice president of core
engineering since he joined from Amazon last year.
Sehn is Snap’s
fourth executive to depart since its tumultuous initial
public offering earlier this year. The company
missed Wall Street’s expectations for its third-quarter earnings
on Tuesday and said it planned to release a redesign of its app
to help kick-start stalled user growth.
