Jim Greer to Step Down as Kongregate CEO

Jim Greer is very soon stepping down as Kongregate’s CEO. He declared the news in a forum post on the indie game portal’s web site. His sister Emily Greer will become the site’s next CEO. Jim will stick with the supportive role in the site and along with it will also be launching a non-profit political action group, according to a top website. The modification will go into effect on February 28.

Kongregate is host to thousands of games, both downloadable and browser-based. The site also has its own game development team. The gaming portal was acquired by GameStop in July 2010 and recently it established a $10 million mobile game fund for Kongregate.
