Gamestop-owned free-to-play game company Kongregate has announced that as of February 28th, CEO Jim Greer will step down as CEO and his sister and co-founder will take over. Jim will still be a part of Kongregate, becoming its head of technology on a part-time basis, since he is also involved with the launch of a not-for-profit political action organization.

“Since founding the company in 2006, Jim has played a key role in growing the Kongregate business and its user base to 18 million strong unique visitors each month,” said Mike Hogan, executive vice president of strategy for GameStop, in part. “We wish Jim much success as he pursues the next chapter in his career, and we welcome his continued contributions as Kongregate’s chief technology officer.”

“I am confident that Emily’s vision and focused execution and leadership will continue to grow Kongregate’s business through the launching of new and exciting mobile- and browser-based games.”
