Jason Bristow has left Code42 after 14 months as chief financial officer, another leadership change at the Minneapolis software company that just brought in a new top leader.
“Transition at the executive level is not uncommon in fast-growth companies like Code42,” new Chief Executive Joe Payne said in a statement Friday. “Jason is leaving Code42 on amicable terms, and we wish him the best as he looks to pursue other opportunities.”
The company’s finance director, Chuck Wyatt, will take over while a search is launched for a new CFO.
Bristow, 41, an Eden Prairie native, was vice president and treasurer of Amazon.com Inc. before joining Code42 in May 2014. He could not be reached for comment Friday.
Code42, which makes utility and productivity software, hired Payne to succeed one of its co-founders as CEO on July 14. In late May, co-founder Matthew Dornquast relinquished control of the firm, which he led from its start in 2001.
The company, best known for its CrashPlan product for enterprises and consumers, for the past year focused more intensively on the business market and doubled its revenue among large companies.
Last year, it entered the data synchronization market with a product called SharePlan, designed to swiftly share large files across mobile devices and computers.
Code42, with more than 400 employees and $65 million in revenue last year, has been the subject of takeover speculation. It could also be a candidate for an eventual public offering.
