Social dating company Spark Networks has announced the appointment of Chelsea A. Grayson as Interim CEO. She will be the company’s first ever female CEO.
Looking ahead, Grayson said “The exceptional array of our brands, along with our diverse global user base, combine to position the company to seize an ever-greater share of the social dating platform industry and facilitate truly important relationships for our consumers.”
Grayson served as the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors before taking on this new position.
“Chelsea’s rare mix of executive leadership, consumer brand, operational knowhow, and deep familiarity with the company and our products makes her the ideal leader to take Spark Networks forward at this time”, shared Colleen Birdnow Brown, Board Chair.
She inherits the CEO position from Eric Eichmann, who stepped down to explore future opportunities and spend more time with family.
Brown thanked Eichmann for his work saying “we are especially appreciative of Eric’s successful leadership and contributions through a difficult period for the company over the last three years and thank him for all of his work on the ongoing strategic alternatives review”.
