For the past 3 1/2 years, Tom Stockham has served as president and chief executive officer of MyFamily, the company that owns Ancestry.com, MyFamily.com and several other web sites. The company has now quietly told its employees that Tom has left the company. Apparently the company's Board of Directors accepted his resignation within the past day or two.
David Moon, Chairman of the Board, has assumed the duties of chief executive officer of the firm while a search for a new CEO is conducted. Mr. Moon has made it clear that there will be no immediate change in the company's products or business practices. Employees have been told that the Board of Directors is looking for a new CEO who will be a strong leader and will lead the team effort to develop new products while simultaneously keeping a close eye on present customers' interests and goals.
