As Nextdoor grows as a company and expands into new markets, it is important we continue to build out our company’s leadership team in multiple facets of the business. Complying with regulations in the technology industry is a key factor to Nextdoor’s future success.
That’s why we are proud to announce that John Orta has joined Nextdoor as its Chief Legal Officer to guide us as we move into the next chapter as a company. John brings a solid track record of leadership at several successful technology companies. As Chief Legal Officer, John will report to me and oversee Nextdoor’s legal affairs.
John joined Nextdoor from Metromile, the leader in pay-per-mile auto insurance as its Chief People Officer & General Counsel. Prior to his role at Metromile, John was SVP & General Counsel at OpenTable, leading the legal team during the company’s IPO in 2009, and OpenTable’s purchase by The Priceline Group in 2014.
An adjunct professor at the University of San Francisco School of Law, John’s experience, talent, and passion will be a wonderful asset to the company. As we enter the next phase as a company, we are thrilled to welcome him to the neighborhood!
