Twitter has seen a wave of executive departures in recent times, as the social network tries to reignite its user growth under returned-CEO Jack Dorsey.
Its VP of commerce Nathan Hubbard, who joined Twitter from a role as CEO of Ticketmaster, is the latest to leave. Although his departure comes amid reports that Twitter is reining back its commerce features, Hubbard said (on Twitter) that personal reasons were behind his decision to leave.
“After ~3 years of commuting to SF from LA, I need to be based at home with my children. Honestly, it’s been rough on my family,” he wrote, before hinting at plans to take another role or launch a startup quickly.
“I’m ready to take all that I’ve learned, all the ways in which I got better, into leading what I need to do next. Stay tuned,” wrote Hubbard. “Thanks to the Commerce team for shipping pioneering product, and the Media team for empowering creators to impact the world every day.”
