Greg Tomb, a former Google executive, has been fired as president of video conferencing platform Zoom.
Mr Tomb’s contract was abruptly terminated “without cause,” according to a regulatory filing by the company.
The businessman had assumed the position in June 2022 and had participated in earnings calls as well as overseeing the company’s sales.
A Zoom spokesperson stated that the company is not looking for a replacement.
Mr Tomb reported directly to Zoom’s CEO, Eric Yuan, who founded the company in 2011 and led it to become one of the pandemic’s biggest winners.
As people needed to stay at home and screen time increased, Zoom became a household name.
There were Zoom weddings and funerals, and the company estimated that 300 million people were on Zoom calls every day by April 2020.
Mr Yuan expressed his excitement about Mr Tomb’s appointment at the time, saying, “Greg is a highly respected technology industry leader with deep experience in helping to scale companies at critical junctures.”
Mr. Tomb expressed his excitement at joining the team and helping to “drive growth” as businesses around the world addressed their communication needs.
