Kongregate CEO Jim Greer steps down to focus on politics
February 20, 2014 | By Alex Wawro




Newsbrief: Kongregate co-founder and CEO Jim Greer announced today that he is stepping down as CEO, effective February 28.

Kongregate co-founder and current COO Emily Greer will be taking over as CEO of the casual games website. Her brother Jim will continue to serve part-time as Kongregate's CTO while he works on launching a non-profit political action group.

Kongregate got its start in 2006 as a Flash game hub that self-identified as "the YouTube of games." It was acquired by GameStop in 2010, and has since gone on to branch out and experiment with releasing both free-to-play downloadable titles and mobile games.

It's worth pointing out that ascendant CEO Emily Greer will be giving a talk about the art and business of launching mobile games across iOS, Android, and the web at GDC 2014 next month.
