Executive Exodus at GitHub

Nine executives have left GitHub in recent months, according to people briefed on the matter and public disclosures.

GitHub makes software for tracking changes to open-source project code. It has raised $350 million from Andreessen Horowitz and Sequoia Capital.

Chief Information Officer Scott Chacon, head of corporate sales Brandon O'Sullivan and Creative Director Cameron McEfee have left, according to people familiar with the matter.

Six other executives have disclosed their departures on LinkedIn in the past several months, including Brian Doll, vice president of strategy; Marco Di Giacomo, head of product and partner marketing; Kelli Dragovich, vice president of human resources. TechCrunch earlier reported the departure of Chief Financial Officer Vlado Herman.

GitHub declined to comment on specific departures. The company noted that it recently made executive hires, including former Yahoo executive Kakul Srivastava as head of product management.
