Case resigns as CEO of AOL – Macitynet.it
Steve Case leaves. The creator of the AOL miracle and one of the pioneers of the digital age left the office of CEO of America Online yesterday.
The reasons for the resignation, Case admits, are to be found in the continuing dissatisfaction on the part of the AOL shareholders who indicate in the leadership of the board of directors the main responsible for the unsatisfactory economic results of the last months, those of the post-merger with Time-Warner .
"My choice – says Case – are to be found in the desire to facilitate the birth of a team that focuses essentially on our business"
Case was one of the last "men" of AOL in a prominent position after the merger with Time-Warner of which he was one of the architects.
Case will remain on the board of directors and will continue to lead the commission that deals with development strategies
