Zillow has promoted Jeremy Hofmann as chief financial officer, replacing Allen Parker who has held the position since 2018. Parker will stay on in an advisory into the first quarter of 2024.
Hofmann joined Zillow about six years ago and most recently served as SVP of corporate development and strategy. He has “deep experience in strategy, finance, budgeting and operations rigor, investor relations, mergers and acquisitions and partnerships,” according to the promotion announcement. He led Zillow’s Super App strategy, which the company embarked on in early 2022 after its failed ambitions in home flipping.
“Jeremy has been an integral part of Zillow’s growth since he joined the company,” Zillow co-founder and CEO Rich Barton wrote in the announcement. “He’s at the center of our strategy to capture a greater share of customer transactions in real estate while making it easier for more and more people to get home. Jeremy is key in driving progress on our growth strategy with operational and financial discipline, and I’m looking forward to him having an even bigger hand in shaping the future of Zillow as our CFO.”
Before Zillow, Hofmann spent nearly 10 years in financial services, including at Goldman Sachs, where he was a VP in investment banking.
As Zillow’s CFO, Hofmann will oversee the company’s finance, corporate development, strategy and investor relations teams, and report directly to Barton.
