Quora Loses Its Finance Chief

June 27, 2016, 8:22 PM UTC

Steven Trieu has stepped down as VP of finance at Quora, the question-and-answer site that he joined in late 2011 from Facebook (FB).

Quora doesn’t have a chief financial officer, so Trieu was the person tasked with overseeing private financings for the company―including an $80 million Series C round in 2014 at a $900 million post-money valuation―and creating a long-term option exercise program that served as the model for similar programs at companies like Pinterest.

In a Facebook post announcing his departure, Trieu wrote:


Trieu’s departure from Quora comes just one month after the departure of longtime head of business and community, Marc Bodnick.
