Linden Lab CEO Steps Down

Posted Fri, Jun 25, 2010 by Martuk

Second Life creator Linden Lab CEO Mark Kingdon has stepped down following a 30% layoff in the company's workforce. Linden Lab founder Philip Rosedale will return as interim CEO to work with former CFO Bob Komin, who will assume the role of company COO. Additional information was posted earlier today on Philip Rosedale's blog on the Second Life website detailing some of the team's plans for the future of Second Life.

Our thinking as a team is that my returning to the CEO job now can bring a product and technology focus that will help rapidly improve Second Life.  We need to simplify and focus our product priorities -- concentrating all our capabilities on making Second Life easier to use and better for the core experiences that it is delivering today.  I think that I can be a great help and a strong leader in that process.
