Pinterest cofounder Paul Sciarra is leaving the company, according to startup community site Startup Grind.
Startup Grind notes that while Sciarra is listed as CEO and founder on Pinterest’s SEC filings, he’s primarily worked in a behind-the-scenes role while Ben Silbermann has served as the public face of the fast-growing company.
Sciarra’s departure was confirmed by “multiple sources inside the company,” Startup Grind says. A source familiar with the company tells paidContent that Sciarra wanted to remain CEO. I’ve requested a comment from Pinterest.
