Twitter COO exits company, Anthony Noto named COO

Adam Bain has resigned as COO of Twitter. The company announced that Bain will be exploring opportunities outside the company. His position will now be taken by Anthony Noto who has served as CFO since July 2014.

As COO he will continue to manage the live content business and assume responsibility for Twitter’s revenue generating organizations including global advertising sales, data, revenue product, and MoPub, as well as global partnerships and business development, effective immediately. Bain will assist with the transition of the COO role over the coming weeks.

The current leadership team responsible for these respective areas will now report to Noto, including Matt Derella, Twitter’s Vice President of Global Revenue and Operations.

Additionally, Twitter is initiating a search to identify a CFO replacement for Noto. Noto in addition to being the COO will continue as the CFO until a new CFO is appointed.

“Since joining Twitter in 2010, Adam has built an amazing team and a global business from the ground up,” said Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO. “I’m grateful to Adam for everything he’s done for Twitter and for his leadership and friendship over the years. I can't wait to see what he does next!”

“It has been a privilege and honor to work alongside Jack and the entire Twitter team to help build one of the world's most unique and powerful platforms that exists today,” said Bain. “The past six years have been incredible and I’m inspired by what Twitter has become and what it will be in the future. Anthony and I have worked side by side since he joined Twitter in July 2014 and I have full faith in what he and the teams will accomplish in the future.”

“I am honored by the trust that Jack has placed in me to take on this new role,” said Noto. “I’ve enjoyed nothing more than partnering every day with Adam in striving to achieve Twitter’s goals, and I will always be grateful for his tremendous contributions. I look forward to leading this team and capitalizing on our recent momentum of accelerating audience and engagement metrics.”

Bain has been responsible for setting up the company’s advertising business even as the company has been struggling to increase revenues as user growth continues to underperform.
