Exit follows Stahura’s role change.
Half of new top level domain name company Donuts’ founding team is no longer in their original day-to-day roles.
The company announced that Richard Tindal, COO and one of four co-founders of the company, has “retired” from Donuts.
Earlier this year, co-founder and CEO Paul Stahura switched roles with Bruce Jaffe. Jaffe was Executive Chairman of the company’s board. Stahura is now a full-time Executive Chairman.
When Jaffe replaced Stahura, the company also hired John Pollard as Chief Revenue Officer. At the time, Pollard told Domain Name Wire that despite some overlaps between his role and that of the other Donuts’ co-founders, the founders would all remain with the company.
“I wouldn’t have taken this job if any of the founders were leaving,” Pollard said in January.
The other two co-founders are Dan Schindler (currently Executive Vice President, Business Development) and Jon Nevett (currently Executive Vice President, Corporate Affairs).
