Etsy COO departs
today Sep 14, 2018
Etsy announced on Thursday that its Chief Operating Officer, Linda Findley Kozlowski, is leaving the company “to pursue other opportunities,” but will remain in her position through the end of 2018.
A global marketplace for unique and creative goods, Etsy said it doesn’t intend to refill the COO role following Kozlowski 's departure, ultimately eliminating the position.
Etsy CEO, Josh Silverman, said he plans “to devote more time to working directly with our product teams so that we can execute on our roadmap and drive growth."
"Linda's contributions will leave a lasting mark on Etsy and its community. She has been instrumental in enabling Etsy to expand our global base of buyers, improve the shopping experience, and launch new products that make it easier for sellers to succeed,” he added.
Kozlowski joined Etsy in 2016. Until her departure, she will work with Etsy's leadership team to ensure a seamless transition and help the company continue to execute on its 2018 goals and initiatives.
Etsy currently expects revenue growth of 32 percent to 34 percent in 2018. The company was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Brooklyn, New York.
