April Underwood of Slack Technologies to step down

Slack Technologies Inc.’s Chief Product Officer April Underwood is stepping down from her post to spend more time working at #Angels.

After Slack Technologies Inc. unveiled their new logo earlier this week, the startup messaging app is losing its Chief Product Officer, April Underwood. Underwood joined Slack in 2015 as head of Slack’s platform and just got promoted last April 2018.

Underwood said that she is leaving Slack to focus and spend more time working in her co-founded investing venture #Angels. Prior to Slack, she spent five-years serving Twitter as Director of Product and also an employee at Google. During her tenure, Underwood had a hand in crafting Slack’s investment fund.

Tamar Yehoshua will fill Underwood’s role. Yehoshua spent more than eight years at Google and most recently served as a vice president overseeing several product and engineering teams. According to Slack’s CEO Stewart Butterfield, Yehoshua has an unparalleled depth of technical knowledge for a product leader and has worked at levels of scale and complexity that few others have seen.

Underwood thank Stewart Butterfield, Cal Henderson, and her team in her Medium blog post. She also said that she is so proud of the work the entire team at Slack is doing.
