Pottermore Loses CEO

Jul 02, 2013

It probably won't matter much to the hordes of Potter fans who frequent Pottermore, but CEO Charlie Redmayne is leaving to return to HarperCollins U.K. as CEO. Redmayne had served as the head of Pottermore since its beginning in 2011.

In that wake of Redmayne's departure, Pottermore is without a CEO but CTO Julian Thomas will run things during the transition, according to paidContent. Pottermore reportedly sold $5 million worth of ebooks in its first month of operation, and claims 45 million unique visitors since its debut.
