Zoom sacks president

Zoom, a video conferencing platform has sacked its president, Greg Tomb.

The contract of Tomb who was a former Google executive was unexpectedly terminated “without cause”, the company said in a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) signed off by Zoom’s chief operating officer Aparna Bawa.

It is still unclear who would take over Tomb’s position as president of Zoom.

A spokesperson from Zoom confirmed to Bloomberg that the company currently was not seeking a replacement.

The businessman had taken up the role in June 2022 and had been active on earnings calls and overseeing the company’s sales.

Mr Tomb reported directly to chief executive officer Eric Yuan, who started Zoom in 2011 and was at the helm as the company became one of the pandemic’s biggest winners, BBC says.
