Zoom terminated Greg Tomb as the company's president eight months after he was hired. The "termination without a cause" will take effect this Friday, the company stated in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Zoom Video Communication delivered additional bad news for the company, in addition to company layoffs and weak sales growth. The business will no longer employ President Greg Tomb as of this Friday, according to a report from WSJ. Additionally, his unjustified termination was disclosed in a Securities and Exchange Commission regulatory filing. According to a Zoom representative, the firm is not currently seeking for Tomb's replacement. According to analyst Sterling Auty, this choice was made after Zoom's most recent projection showed a considerably greater slowdown in growth than the Street had anticipated. Auty continued, "And now we have a change being made in the executive that was brought in for sales leadership." Furthermore, Tomb was appointed as the company president in June 2022, and during his brief term, he presided over the office of the Global CIO, oversaw the sales operation, and participated in earnings calls. He reported directly to CEO Eric Yuan throughout his tenure at the company.

Additional details

According to Bloomberg, his contract also contained a $45 million stock grant that would vest over four years and a base income of $400,000 with a bonus goal of 8%. In addition, he was hired in an effort to help Zoom write its next chapter as it continues to develop into a platform that supports business workflows, hybrid work, and communication. He served as the vice president of sales at Google Cloud for Google Workspace, SMB, Data & Analytics, Geo Enterprises, and Security Sales before joining Zoom. Also, he was appointed president of sales and global technology management for SAP's cloud services, which include Intelligent Spend, SuccessFactors, Customer Experience, Digital Supply Chain, Concur, and Business Technology Platform. According to a statement made public by Zoom in June, he had held managerial positions at Accenture Consulting and Comergent Technologies Inc. before gaining this expertise. He also worked as the Chief Executive Officer of Vivido Labs Inc. On another note, CEO Yuan indicated that 1,300 people would be let go, representing around 15% of the company's workforce. And all departments of the corporation are seeing job cuts, although the staff was promised 16 weeks' worth of pay before being let go. In addition to this, employees will be offered healthcare coverage.
