Student E-Reader Startup Kno Hires A New CFO

Kno, the heavily-backed startup that is developing e-readers designed for students, has hired a new CFO. The company tells us it has brought in Stuart West, whose long resume includes time at TiVo (NSDQ: TIVO), Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO) and InfoSpace (NSDQ: INSP), to oversee its finances. West was most recently the chief strategy officer and head of M&A at InfoSpace but he also spent nearly six years working on the finance side at TiVo, including five months as interim CFO in 2006.

Kno, which is set to release two devices later this year, has raised more than $54 million, including $46 million in a round last month.
