Charlotte-based LendingTree on Thursday announced the hiring of a new chief technology officer who will be based in the company’s headquarters city.

LendingTree, whose website lets consumers shop for a variety of loans, said Paul Tyma’s experience includes three years as an engineer for Google. LendingTree said Tyma will be responsible for leading the company’s technology strategy and operations.

The move comes almost a year after LendingTree announced the hiring of former Expedia.com tech chief Paul Onnen to the chief technology officer role.

In an email, LendingTree spokeswoman Megan Greuling said Onnen “had to resign to tend to personal and family matters.” She did not elaborate.

LendingTree said Tyma’s experience includes building and running engineering teams at LinkedIn and Morgan Stanley.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Paul to the LendingTree team, who has an impressive background in developing, launching and managing innovative web-based solutions,” LendingTree CEO Doug Lebda said in a statement.

LendingTree’s headquarters is in Ballantyne Corporate Park.
