“I’m delighted to return to Nextdoor, the company I founded to bring neighbors all over the world closer together,” said Nirav Tolia. “I’m immensely grateful to Sarah for her incredible leadership over the past five years, during which time Nextdoor became a public company, built a strong balance sheet, and scaled the business globally. I have loved working with Sarah and look forward to working together in the coming weeks as we transition seamlessly to this next phase for Nextdoor.”
