Spencer Rascoff, who’s been part of the management team of property listings and valuation portal Zillow.com since its launch in 2005, was named the company’s CEO in September.

A co-founder of Hotwire.com and veteran of online travel site Expedia, Rascoff’s resume also includes a two-year stint as an investment banker at Goldman, Sachs & Co. following his graduation from Harvard University.

It’s been a momentous year for Zillow, which announced an advertising partnership with Yahoo Real Estate in July in which Zillow will also manage for-sale listings on both sites. As the year drew to a close, Zillow launched a ratings tool that allows consumers to evaluate real estate agents they’ve worked with in the past.
