Tinder has a new CEO

Tinder has replaced its CEO and co-founder Sean Rad with Chris Payne, a former eBay executive who oversaw its North America business, Re/code reports.

Rad, one of Tinder’s original cofounders, left the company back in November, but Re/code reported at the time that Rad would “stay on Tinder’s board and continue to help with the product once a new CEO is hired.”

Payne left eBay in December, and eBay said that he’d “decided to leave eBay to pursue a new business venture.”
