from San Francisco Gate
San Francisco's TaskRabbit has named Chief Operating Officer Stacy Brown-Philpot as its CEO, making her one of the few black women to lead a Bay Area tech company. Leah Busque, who has led the odd-jobs marketplace since founding it eight years ago, will become executive chairwoman. "Since she joined three years ago, Stacy has helped TaskRabbit evolve the platform, launch in international markets (London) and recruit talent at all levels of the company," Busque wrote in a post on Medium.
