— PCC Community Markets announced Krishnan “Krish” Srinivasan, a former finance executive at Lyft and Seattle startup Remitly, as its new CEO today. He has served as CFO of the Seattle-based grocery co-op since 2018.

The announcement comes after a five-month search following the departure of former PCC President and CEO Suzanne Monford, a former QFC executive who stepped down after less than a year.

Srinivasan is currently a board member of the National Co+op Grocers. Prior to Lyft, he served as a regional CFO for Amazon and previously was a general manager at Microsoft.

“PCC has been a special place for my family and I ever since we became co-op members more than two decades ago,” said Srinivasan.

PCC Community Markets currently has 16 stores in the Puget Sound region and more than 100,000 co-op members.

— Online cannabis marketplace Leafly appointed startup veteran Jeff Oberlander as SVP of engineering. He was most recently CTO at Seattle startup Pipeline CRM and previously and engineering leader at Navigating Cancer and Getty Images. Leafly said this week it raised $30 million ahead of an expected SPAC merger. A vote on the merger is now delayed, Leafly said.
