Hulu CEO Jason Kilar and CTO Rich Tom are leaving the firm.
“I’ve decided to depart Hulu in Q1,” Kilar said in a blog post Friday. “I am currently working with the Board to ensure there is ample runway to manage this transition. Rich Tom will be doing the same, with roughly the same departure date. Rich and I have been fortunate to build and innovate alongside each other these past 5+ years and our plan is to do more of that on the road ahead.”
It’s unclear why Kilar and Tom have decided to leave the firm, but Kilar hinted that it was his own decision. “I’ve been so fortunate to play a role in this amazing, ongoing journey. My decision to depart has been one of the toughest I’ve ever made. Though the words will fall short of the intended mark, please know how much this team means to me and how very thankful I am to be able to innovate and build alongside you each day.”
We wish both the best of luck in their future endeavors.
