Milwaukee-based Frontdesk, a short-term apartment rental company, has announced the appointment of Jesse DePinto as the new CEO of the organization. DePinto was previously the chief product officer and is a co-founder of Frontdesk. He replaces past CEO and co-founder Kyle Weatherly, who is stepping down and taking on a new role as board director.
In a Thursday announcement, Weatherly said it was always a part of the plan for DePinto to eventually take over and lead the company.
“Jesse has been leading the day-to-day operations for some time, so, more than anything, this is simply our job titles catching up with reality,” Weatherly said. “Today is an exciting inflection point in the company’s history, and Jesse’s arrival into the CEO role marks a turning point that we are entering a new phase of growth for the company.”
