The dating app’s cofounder Wolfe Herd, who became the youngest self-made female billionaire ever in 2021, will become Bumble’s executive chairwoman.
Whitney Wolfe Herd started Bumble in 2014. She was also involved in early stage Tinder from 2012-2014.
Due to declines in Bumble stock, Wolfe Herd has lost her billionaire status. Seems like she had too much of her personal fortune in company stock.
Despite working at Tinder and Bumble for the past 11 years, Wolfe Herd did not meet her husband on either Tinder or Bumble. The former Whitney Wolfe met oil and gas heir Michael Herd on an Aspen ski trip in December 2013 while still working at Tinder.
Bumble is the rare dating app that is not a part of The Match Group.
