LendingTree’s Doug Lebda on Record Revenue and Free Beer on Fridays

Doug Lebda has some big numbers to share with his employees at his weekly town hall employee meeting on Friday. The CEO of Tree.com (NASDAQ: TREE), parent of LendingTree.com, this week reported the company’s revenue hit a record high — $28 million in the first quarter — since he made the call several years ago to return to the basic business model he founded the company on more than a decade ago.
