Zillow Group recently announced two key executive promotions. According to the announcement, Kathleen Philips, who has been the company's COO since 2013, has been named CFO of Zillow Group. In addition, Amy Bohutinsky, who has been CMO since 2011, has been promoted to COO of Zillow Group.
Philips began her career at Zillow Group in 2010 as general counsel and has spent the last two years as COO. In the COO position, she ran mergers and acquisitions, corporate development, human resources, legal, and customer support. Before joining Zillow, Philips served as general counsel of Hotwire, StubHub, Pure Digital Technologies, and FanSnap.
In her new role as CFO, Philips will oversee the finance, treasury, and accounting functions for Zillow Group, and will continue to oversee legal operations and corporate development.
"I've worked closely with Kathleen for over ten years, first at Hotwire where she was general counsel and a member of our senior leadership and now here at Zillow, where she has played an instrumental role in our success," said Spencer Rascoff, Zillow Group's CEO. "Kathleen has been at the center of all of Zillow's key business initiatives for the last five years. She is perfectly positioned to be Zillow Group's new CFO, and I'm very excited to work with her in this new role."
Amy Bohutinsky will replace Philips and take over as COO. Bohutinsky joined Zillow pre-launch in 2005.
In her previous role as Zillow Group's CMO, Bohutinsky was responsible for brand strategy for all consumer and business to business brands in the Zillow Group portfolio, as well as growth, marketing, and consumer care for the group's flagship Zillow brand.
In her new role, Bohutinsky will oversee Zillow Group's people organization (human resources, recruiting and learning, and development), as well as marketing, communications, and consumer care. Prior to Zillow, Bohutinsky ran communications for Hotwire.
"Amy has been with Zillow from the beginning and has played a critical role in growing the Zillow brand from launch to where we are today–the leading real estate website in the country," Rascoff said. "She's an incredibly valuable member of our executive team, and this promotion recognizes her contributions to the company as an individual and a leader."
Former Zillow VP of Marketing and Product Jeremy Wacksman will replace Bohutinsky as CMO.
