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.”
