Management Exodus Continues at Prosper Marketplace

September 3, 2009

It may be time to install a revolving door in the Human Resources office at Prosper Marketplace ( as the pace of departures by high-profile executives appears to be picking up speed.

In addition to the numerous departures of a decidely mixed bag of human talent during Prosper’s short life, there are reports tonight that General Counsel (and Chief Compliance Officer) Ed Giedgowd is no longer with the company, but has been replaced by a gentleman named Sachin Adarkar.

In related news, it has now been confirmed that Product Manager Andrew Martinez-Fonts has also moved on to another venture. 

Other notable departures over the years include:

John Witchel, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer

Thomas Pigoski, VP Information Security & Risk Management/CISO

Karen Appleton, VP Business Development

Rob Klapper, Chief Marketing Officer

Shira Levine, Marketing Director

Update: Fellow Giedgowd-watchers may find this (How about it, Mr. Giedgowd?) of some interest.

    “there are reports tonight that General Counsel Ed Giedgowd is no longer with the company,”

    Well more than “reports”, this change is now reflected on Prosper’s page of Management and Investors:

    As for Andrew, he will be missed.

    Right – there is documented evidence of the new General Counsel starting, but not yet conclusive evidence of the old one leaving. His LinkedIn profile still has him at Prosper – as does his state bar registration.
