Spencer Rascoff is the CEO of Zillow, one of the largest real estate websites. He grew up in New York (go Dalton Tigers!) and then LA (go Harvard-Westlake Wolverines!). He got his BA at Harvard and then worked at Goldman-Sachs as an investment banker, and at TPG as a private equity investor. While at TPG in 1999, he co-founded Hotwire, a leading discount travel company which he sold to Expedia in 2003. He left Expedia in 2005 with several colleagues to start Zillow, and that's where you'll find today.
