After viral layoffs, Better.com’s execs resign

1 min read

Things are not going any better at Better.com following the “brutal” layoffs made by its CEO Vishal Garg that continues to gain attention.

On Tuesday afternoon, TechCruch said that Better’s top executives have resigned after the viral layoffs made by Garg. Included in its staff who filed their resignation was head of public relations, Tanya Gillogley; vice president of communications, Patrick Lenihan; and head of marketing, Melanie Hahn, as reported by SFGATE.

When the layoffs made a bang online, Gillogley and Lenihan were on the frontlines, facing the media to represent the company.

TechCruch reported that the resignations surfaced as Garg released an internal apology that made it to the Blind, which also carried the information of Garg’s badmouthing at the workers he laid off for “stealing” from the company.

 “I realize that the way I communicated this news made a difficult situation worse,” the CEO’s message read. Tiktok account @wanderellaco, which also first posted the mass firing, also had Garg’s statement. “I am deeply sorry and am committed to learning from this situation and doing more to be the leader that you expect me to be.”

Furthermore, Better.com’s agreement with SoftBank to eventually go public also faced delays, TechCruch said.

Better’s LinkedIn account said it is looking for at least four staff within the Bay Area.
