CasaHop President Florent Peyre Checks Out of Social Travel Site

Florent Peyre, the co-founder and president of CasaHop, a home-swapping site, has left the company.

After getting the New York-based company off the ground earlier this year, Peyre confirmed that he decided to move on, but will continue as an adviser. No word on what he is doing next.

The social travel site, which is following in the footsteps of other sites like Airbnb, launched in May and had raised about $1.2 million in funding. The impressive investor list includes Lerer Ventures, First Round Capital, Betaworks and many other angels.

Peyre, whom I interviewed in this video in June, founded the company along with Paul Berry, the former CTO of Huffington Post. Prior to joining CasaHop, Peyre was the VP of Business Development and Strategy at Gilt City, Gilt Groupe’s daily deals business.
