Glassdoor announces new CEO

August 27, 2019

Jobs and reviews website Glassdoor announced CEO and co-founder Robert Hohman will step down from the role effective Jan. 6, although he will remain on as chairman. Replacing Hohman as CEO at the start of the year will be Christian Sutherland-Wong, who presently serves as president and chief operating officer at the company.

The move comes after Glassdoor was acquired last year by Recruit Holdings Co. Ltd., which ranks as one of the world’s largest staffing firms and owns of jobs website Indeed.

Glassdoor had named Sutherland-Wong as president earlier this year and he had been appointed as COO prior to that. He joined the company in 2015 as VP and general manager of monetization.

“My vision is to build on Glassdoor’s excellence, as a business and as an employer, that Robert has established over the past 12 years,” Sutherland-Wong said.

Sutherland-Wong previously held roles at LinkedIn and Bain & Co.

Hohman had served as CEO of Glassdoor since launching it online in 2008.
