Ryan O'Hara, former Move Inc. CEO, tapped to lead Shutterfly

O'Hara has a new executive job outside the real estate industry less than a week after he resigned from Move Inc.

Less than a week after Move Inc., the News Corp. subsidiary that operates realtor.com announced CEO Ryan O’Hara was resigning as CEO, it appears the former real estate executive has a new job. O’Hara was announced Monday as the new CEO and president of Shutterfly, an image publishing platform.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Shutterfly’s mission to help capture, preserve and share life’s important memories,” O’Hara said in a statement. “With a unique consumer value proposition and strong brand identity across both Lifetouch and Shutterfly, combined with world-class manufacturing capabilities and technological innovation, I’m thrilled to join this team and help drive the next chapter of growth.”

O’Hara served as the CEO of Move Inc. and was in charge of its portal brand realtor.com since 2014.

The move to bring O’Hara in to lead the company as the top executive came on the same day that Apollo Global Management announced it’s buying Shutterfly for $1.74 billion.

In the wake of O’Hara’s departure, Tracey Fellows, the current president of global digital real estate at News Corp. will serve as the acting CEO of Move Inc. while the search for a new CEO is underway.
