Bob Komin, Linden Lab’s CFO and COO has departed Linden Lab after a more than two-and-a-half year stint through some pretty tough times at the company.
Komin turned the company around from Q2 2010 to Q1 2011, reversing the company’s high cash burn-rate and guiding it to record profitability as the head of the Global Technical Operations, QA, Customer Support, IT, HR, Legal, Finance and Accounting teams.
First up, I’d really like to thank all of you for your attention to the Weekly Linden account changes column that I ran weekly. Consistently, week after week, for the last 38 weeks the feature has attracted more readers than any other single thing.
