Indianapolis-based Angie’s List (Nasdaq: ANGI) has announced Thomas Evans has been elected chairman of the board. Evans succeeds John Chuang, who resigned from the board last week.
Evans has served as chief executive officer for three public companies, most recently for New York-based Bankrate Inc. (NYSE: RATE), where he also served on the board of directors before retiring in 2013. He also spent seven years as president and publisher of U.S. News & World Report.
"Tom is an outstanding choice to be Chairman of the Angie’s List Board," said Angie’s List CEO Scott Durchslag. "Since joining our board, he has helped establish a vision for board excellence and effectiveness. I am eager for the Company to continue to benefit from his tremendous leadership and experience."
Angie’s List also announced the resignation of Steven Kapner from the board. As a result of the resignations of Chuang and Kapner, the company has reduced the size of the board from 12 members to 10.
