Stone will take charge on May 16, while Vollero will remain as an adviser until August 15.

“He (Vollero) has done an amazing job as Snap’s first CFO, building a strong team and helping to guide us through our transition to becoming a public company,” Snap Chief Executive Officer Evan Spiegel said.

Stone will have an annual salary of $500,000, according to the filing.

The appointment comes a week after Snap’s quarterly results failed to enthuse Wall Street. A recent redesign of its Snapchat messaging app had turned off some long-time fans and advertisers.

Snap’s shares were up nearly 1.6 percent at $10.91 in extended trading on Monday.
