January 7, 2010 at 5:24 PM (PT)
Long-time NAPSTER CEO CHRIS GOROG and president BRAD DUEA have exited as part of a reorganization at the music streaming service, reports PAIDCONTENT.ORG. Eighteen months ago, the duo helped facilitate the sale of NAPSTER to BEST BUY for $121 million, when they were given contract extensions that were effective until MARCH 2012.
Today, BEST BUY eliminated both posts to "streamline NAPSTER’s executive structure and more effectively integrate NAPSTER’s corporate activities into BEST BUY." NAPSTER COO CHRISTOPHER ALLEN, will also assume the GM post.
