We’re looking forward to a great 2016 at Yelp - one that will deliver new products and features, an expanding global community of users, new talented team members that continue to make Yelp a best place to work, and a proven return on investment for our customers. Oh, and we’ll also hit our 100 millionth review!
Part of what makes Yelp both unique -- and a great place to work -- is the consistent, tenured leadership that has helped us transition from our founding story to our growth story. So, as we kick off another year, I’m pleased to announce the promotion of one of our most accomplished leaders, Jed Nachman, to Chief Revenue Officer.
Since joining Yelp as Head of Local Sales in 2007, Jed has built our sales organization, including client services and revenue operations, from 10 to over 2000 team members. Along the way, Jed and his team have grown Yelp revenue from $500 thousand to $500 million. He has also been an integral member of our executive team -- and helped establish our positive, energetic and highly accountable company culture. Now as Chief Revenue Officer, Jed will lead our local advertising business, take a more prominent role in company-wide planning and help push the company past the $1 billion revenue milestone.
We’re lucky to have Jed as a trusted leader that keeps us focused on customer success, strong revenue performance, and the continued success of Yelp for years to come.
Jed Nachman, Yelp Chief Revenue Officer
