Snap Is Making Up for Last Year

Filling high-profile vacancies

Last year was rough for Snap in terms of personnel—it lost more than ten high-profile personnel, denting its stock. However, over the last six months, the company has filled six high-profile positions and calmed anxious investors. The company just appointed finance VP Derek Anderson as its CFO after the position was vacated by Tim Stone earlier this year due to a falling out with CEO Evan Spiegel. Lara Sweet, the interim CFO and chief accounting officer, will be stepping into a new role as “Chief People Officer,” and the company appointed Kenny Mitchell as its chief marketing officer last month.
