Nest’s new CEO lives in Denver and will commute to the Palo Alto headquarters

Incoming Nest CEO Marwan Fawaz.

Nest named Marwan Fawaz as its new CEO on Friday, after Tony Fadell announced that he was stepping down.

Fawaz is a cable-industry veteran who is not nearly as well-known of a name in Silicon Valley as Fadell, a former Apple executive.

In fact, he doesn’t live in Silicon Valley. Fawaz currently lives in Denver, Colorado.

And according to a Nest spokesperson, the company’s new CEO will continue to live in Denver.

“Marwan currently lives in Denver and will be commuting to the Nest Palo Alto office for now,” a Nest spokesperson told Business Insider, adding “we don’t have any information beyond that.”
