Just a few weeks after Priceline Group Inc. CEO Darren Huston resigned after news broke of an inappropriate relationship he had with an employee, Priceline.com CEO Paul Hennessy is leaving to take a job at an unspecified, non-travel industry e-commerce company.

Replacing Hennessy as interim CEO is Chief Operating Officer Brett Keller, who as the Norwalk-based company’s chief marketing officer is credited with helping to bring William Shatner aboard as its longtime celebrity spokesman.

Meanwhile, the search for a replacement for Huston at the parent company is continuing. Former Priceline chairman Jeffrery Boyd, who served as its CEO from 2002 to 2013, has acted as Priceline Group interim CEO since Huston’s exit in April.
