Fitbit CFO Bill Zerella departs after 4 years to join autonomous vehicle startup

Fitbit has announced that (CFO) Bill Zarella is leaving the organization following four years in charge.

Supplanting Zarella is Ronald W. Kisling, who has filled in as the organization’s senior VP and head bookkeeping officer since September 2014. Kisling held the CFO title at various different organizations previously beginning at Fitbit.

Zarella joined Fitbit multi-year before it went open on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), having filled in as CFO at different firms over the past two decades. In any case, Fitbit’s offers have basically been in free fall since the organization’s market make a big appearance in 2015. From its $20 IPO value, Fitbit surged to a high of more than $40 before sinking to under $6, where it has stayed over the previous year.

Fitbit marginally beat Wall Street income expectations in Q1 2018, however, its deals were down year-on-year as the more extensive wellness following market declined, with smartwatches on the up. Against that background, Fitbit recently announced its second smartwatch and first wearable for kids, as it endeavors to exploit its image in more extensive verticals. Earlier this week, Fitbit announced that it had dispatched in excess of a million Versa smartwatches since they went on special in mid-April, making the Versa one of its greatest items to date.

As far as where Zarella is heading presently, well, as indicated by Fitbit he will flex his CFO cleaves at a self-sufficient vehicle startup, however, the name of the organization wasn’t revealed. Zarella’s last day at Fitbit will be June 15, 2018.

“In the course of recent years, Bill’s enthusiasm and devotion to developing beginning period organizations were key empowering agents of Fitbit’s change from a startup to the main worldwide brand it is today,” said Fitbit fellow benefactor and CEO James Park. “We express gratitude toward him for his endless commitments, including driving our fruitful IPO in 2015, directing our overall development, and establishing the framework for our future achievement.”
