Tinder co-founder and Chief Marketing Officer Justin Mateen has resigned after a sex harassment suit filed against him and the company was settled Monday, a person close to the company confirmed. Co-founder Sean Rad, who was also named in the complaint, will retain his role as chief executive.
Mateen had been on indefinite suspension since former Tinder exec Whitney Wolfe filed her lawsuit on June 30. Wolfe claimed Mateen repeatedly called her a “whore” in front of Tinder staff, including Rad, and was ousted from her role as co-founder because she was a woman.
Tinder parent company InterActivCorp said Monday the lawsuit was settled without an admission of wrongdoing and declined to comment further.
