After nine years and considerable discussion with his family, Ryno Blignaut has decided to resign as Xoom's CFO, effective December 1, 2014, to pursue personal interests, spend more time with his family and to carefully evaluate the next step in his career. Ryno will remain available to Xoom for the short term after December 1, 2014 in a consulting capacity.
"Ryno has made an incredible contribution to Xoom from its very early days as a startup, through our IPO and beyond," said Kunze. "We owe him a great deal of thanks for his many contributions to Xoom and wish him the very best in the future. We are also fortunate to have a worthy successor in place. I'm thrilled to report that our VP of Finance, Matt Hibbard, will take over as CFO. Matt knows our business extremely well, having worked closely with Ryno over the past three years."
"Thank you, John, for being such a great boss and mentor to me over the last 9 years," said Blignaut. "It's been a great experience and I've learned a lot. This was obviously a very hard decision for me to make but it feels right and I will always have very fond memories of my time at Xoom. I'm also thrilled that Matt will now have the opportunity to lead this great company with John and the rest of the executive team. Congratulations, Matt."
