  • David Travers has been promoted from CFO to president. 
  • Timothy Yarbrough goes from chief business officer  to CFO.
  • Amy Garefis has been promoted from SVP of Accounting to chief accounting officer.

Timothy Yarbrough

Qasim Saifee, who was promoted to COO in September, will continue to oversee the company’s product, technology, and sales and marketing divisions. Both Travers and Saifee will report directly to CEO Ian Siegel. 

Amy Garefis

Yarbrough, the new CFO, had served as chief business officer since September 2020, and other management positions including SVP of finance from February 2017 to September 2020 and VP of finance from November 2014 to January 2017. 

Garefis, the new chief accounting officer, had served as SVP of accounting since July 2019, and previously was VP of accounting from June 2015 to July 2019, and the company’s controller since November 2013. 

“Dave, Tim and Amy are long-tenured executives and these well-deserved promotions strengthen the company’s senior leadership team as we continue to build momentum since becoming a public company earlier this year,” Siegel wrote in the promotions announcement. “ZipRecruiter’s most important assets are our people and we have an unmatched team that will lead and execute our mission of connecting people to their next great opportunity during this critical time for the U.S. economy.”

With income of $418.1 million in 2020, ZipRecruiter ranked as the no. 8 recruitment site in the world that year, according to the AIM Group’s 2021 Recruitment Marketplaces Annual. ZipRecruiter had its IPO this past May, and its share price has risen from $21.01 to $23.44 since then.
