Trending: Google Cloud product leader arrested on suspicion of murder after wife goes missing in Hawaii

We’ve been tracking a number of key appointments, departures and relocations in the Seattle tech industry in recent days. Here are a few notable tech moves:

Dave Scott, the founder and CEO of Seattle-based Marketfish, is moving to New York City to establish a branch office for the company. Marketfish, which operates an online marketplace for email marketing lists, raised $4.5 million from Rustic Canyon and Javelin Ventures last month. Scott is planning the move in order to be near his wife who is planning to attend Columbia University.

Kumar Srinivasan has left Lockerz — the heavily-funded Seattle social networking upstart — after 12 months on the job. Srinivasan, a former vice president who held the positions of chief technology officer and chief product officer at Lockerz, plans to spend time with his family this summer before “exploring other opportunities,” a Lockerz spokesman tells GeekWire. The company, which raised $30 million in venture capital in April from Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and others, plans to replace Srinivasan after a search. Lockerz is led by former and public relations executive Kathy Savitt.


Tom DuBos has joined Seattle startup EnergySavvy as national sales director, a move that comes after the high-profile closures of Microsoft’s Hohm and Google’s PowerMeter home energy monitoring services. DuBos has spent 23 years in the energy services business, most recently serving as Western Region Business Development Manager for Apogee Interactive.

“His deep experience in online energy efficiency customer web tools and engagement strategies will help EnergySavvy in our mission to bring innovative, engaging and effective tools to home energy efficiency programs,” said EnergySavvy CEO Aaron Goldfeder in a blog post. The company also announced two new customers: CPS Energy in San Antonio and Illinois Home Performance.

Motricity, the Bellevue mobile services company, has named James Nelson to the board in order to fill a vacancy left by outgoing board member Suzanne King.

Spring Creek Group has hired Kevin O’Reilly as director of social marketing analytics and research. O’Reilly previously served as senior manager of business intelligence at Expedia, and before that worked at T-Mobile. Spring Creek is led by Clay McDaniel, a former RealNetworks executive who served as senior director of product management for the RealArcade business.

Larry Godec, senior vice president and chief information officer at First American Title Insurance Company, has been named a strategic advisor to the board at Bellevue-based Apptio.

Jay Victor, a former Disney director of brand strategy, has joined Microsoft’s Central Marketing Group to help tout Windows 8, reports The Register. Victor had previously spent five years at Disney.
