Paul Levine, former president and COO at online real estate platform Trulia, has become an EIR at Greylock Partners and Accel Partners. In announcing the addition, Greylock Partner James Slavet noted that Levine has expertise in consumer internet/mobile businesses, especially ones with local marketplace dynamics. Slavet added that Levine will work with Greylock portfolio companies on their product and go-to-market strategies. He will also split his time between Greylock and Accel. The last EIR to do that was Jeff Weiner in 2008 before he became CEO of LinkedIn.
Trulia, which went public in 2012 and was acquired by Zillow in 2014, had previously raised about $35 million from Accel, Aspect Ventures and Sequoia Capital, among others.
