When we tried reaching Sciarra via his company email, we were sent an auto-reply.
Sciarra was formerly President and CEO of Pinterest but a few months ago Ben Silbermann quietly took his place. It isn’t clear why.
Multiple sources tell Startup Grind’s Derek Andersen that Sciarra will be leaving in the next week or so. Sciarra co-founded Cold Brew Labs with his Yale buddy and current Pinterest CEO, Ben Silbermann in 2008.
Evan Sharp, Pinterest’s third founder, joined in 2011 and is in charge of the site’s design.
We’ve asked Pinterest about the report and will follow up when we learn more.
UPDATE: TechCrunch says it has confirmed Sciarra’s departure with sources. “We’re hearing that Sciarra isn’t clear on what he’ll do next, and may be considering an EIR role at a top tier VC firm.”
