On Tuesday, the company announced that Tim Stockley, founder of porn-friendly social media subscription site OnlyFans, has resigned as CEO after five years “to pursue new endeavors.”
Amrapali “Mom” Jean (In the picture above), who was previously the Marketing and Communications Officer, is taking over as CEO. She will take over the day-to-day leadership of the London-based company. Stokely plans to remain a consultant to OnlyFans during a transition period.
OnlyFans has become a haven for content creators selling subscriptions to X-rated content. In August, he upset several creators after announcing plans to ban pornography, citing the need to comply with bank partner policies. A week later, the site reversed itself, abandoning plans to ban sexually explicit material after saying it was “securing the safeguards needed to support its diverse community of creators”.
Gun, 36, joined OnlyFans in September of last year. Prior to joining OnlyFans, she was Vice President of Marketing for Cannabis Cafe in West Hollywood, where she helped launch and rebrand what has been billed as the first cannabis restaurant in the United States. Communications Red Bull Media House focuses on activation and communications. Gann holds a bachelor’s degree from California State University at Los Angeles in public relations and organizational communication, according to her LinkedIn profile.
“Amy has a deep passion for OnlyFans’ work and I pass on the mission to a friend and colleague who has the vision and leadership to help the organization reach its enormous potential,” Stockley said in a statement. “OnlyFans is still a new company and Ami brings new energy and reflects who we are as a company.”
“I am proud to assume this role,” Gan said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to work closely with our community of creators to help them increase control and monetization of their content. I will lead an exceptionally talented team at OnlyFans that delivers a unique experience for our creators and fans. Through Blending the latest technology with creative capital, we are committed to being the safest social media platform in the world.”
Founded in 2016, OnlyFans claims to have paid out over $5 billion to creators to date. The company says it has 180 million registered users and more than 2 million innovators worldwide.
