Bumble rejigs top brass under new chief executive

(Reuters) – Bumble on Wednesday rejigged its senior leadership at the dating apps operator with four new appointments including the head of product and technology, more than a month after its new chief executive took charge.

The company named Sonos’ vice president of software, Antoine Leblond, as its chief technology officer, replacing Yoav Flam.

Ali Rayl, earlier a senior vice president at messaging service Slack, has been named chief product officer.

Bumble hired Salesforce executive David Ard as chief people officer, and promoted insider Selby Drummond to chief marketing officer.

In November, Bumble founder Whitney Wolfe Herd said she was stepping down from her role as CEO and handing the reins to Lidiane Jones. Jones was earlier the CEO of Salesforce-owned Slack.
