Tinder has replaced CEO Sean Rad with Chris Payne, who most recently had been overseeing eBay's North America business, Re/code's Kurt Wagner and Kara Swisher report.
Rad, one of Tinder's cofounders, stepped down from the CEO role in November, but Re/code reported at the time that he would "stay on Tinder's board and continue to help with the product once a new CEO is hired."
On Friday, Tinder confirmed that Rad would stay on as Tinder's President.
Forbes reported in November that Rad would be moving away from his CEO role and that IAC, Tinder's largest stakeholder, was looking for a more experienced, "Eric Schmidt-like person" as the company's next CEO.
Insiders told Forbes that Tinder's recent sexual-harassment lawsuit was also to blame for Rad's leaving the company. Tinder's ousted cofounder Whitney Wolfe accused Rad, as well as cofounder Justin Mateen, of sexually harassing her. The suit was settled in September, with Forbes reporting that Wolfe gained over $1 million in the settlement.
Prior to arriving at eBay in 2009, Payne also worked for Amazon, Microsoft, and founded software startup Positronic.
Tinder recently rolled out Tinder Plus, a paid version of its dating app. Tinder Plus features add-ons including an "Undo" button--which lets you change your mind if you accidentally swipe the wrong way to indicate a profile match--and a "passport" feature to let you see overseas matches. Users over the age of 28 will have to pay an additional premium to use the service.
