GoPro’s Lurie to Serve as SurveyMonkey Interim Chairman After CEO Dave Goldberg’s Death

Zander Lurie, senior VP of media at GoPro, will serve as exec chairman of SurveyMonkey board for three months after the sudden death of CEO Dave Goldberg on May 1 while on vacation.

Lurie — a former Guggenheim Digital Media and CBS exec — will continue in his role at GoPro, which hired him last fall. Once SurveyMonkey hires a new CEO, Lurie will remain on its board, which he joined in 2009.

“I am a resource to SurveyMonkey during this transition,” Lurie said in a statement. “Dave was a strong leader who assembled an extraordinary team that is committed to fully realizing the company’s mission to help people around the world make better decisions with data.”

Goldberg, husband of Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, died after he fell while exercising at a resort in Mexico. An entrepreneur whose career included stints at Yahoo and venture-capital firm Benchmark, he joined SurveyMonkey in 2009. SurveyMonkey lets users create free and premium online surveys.
