Steve Hafner can add another job to his resume. The Kayak CEO has been appointed to the board of directors of online real estate market Trulia (NYSE: TRLA.DL ) . He now occupies one of seven seats on that body.
In addition to being Kayak's CEO, Hafner is one of two founders of the Internet-based travel services provider. He led the company through its July 2012 IPO, and its subsequent merger with priceline.com (NASDAQ: PCLN ) . The latter was completed this past May, with Priceline ponying up $522.4 million in cash and more than 1.5 million in shares for the company.
In Trulia's press release announcing the appointment, Hafner was quoted waxing enthusiastic about the company's corporate personality. "I believe in their engineering first culture," he said, "and I look forward to being part of the board and taking my experience growing Kayak and using that knowledge to assist in Trulia's continued success."
