We’ve learned that Steve Rowe, chief revenue officer at Zagat, is leaving to become the CRO of MyCityWay.

MyCityWay is a mobile app that helps users explore cities by using urban reference data.  It was founded in November 2009 and has more than 3.5 million activations.

Rowe’s move symbolizes a real monetization push for MyCityWay. 

This isn’t the first executive to leave Zagat for a startup.

Earlier this year, Zagat’s head of mobile Ryan Charles left, moved into WeWork Labs, and launched Consmr, a product review app.
