In a move that shouldn't surprise many people, Sheeraz Haji, President of Convio, will announce today that he is stepping away from his day-to-day operations of the company.
In an email to clients, CEO Gene Austin will announce:
In the first quarter of 2008, Sheeraz will step aside as President and focus on his role as an active member of the Board of Directors for Convio. In this role he remains committed to the success of our organization and will stay visible as an advocate for helping nonprofits use the Internet to take relationships to new levels.Perhaps it was fitting the 34 year old Haji broke the news by email, "After more than seven years of building GetActive and Convio, I'm ready to take some time off and eventually pursue a new venture."
Convio announced two weeks ago they were pursuing an initial public offering of the company and in the filings it was stated that Haji had at least 385,826 shares of Series S common stock.
