KaFe Rocks CEO Simon Pilkington has stepped down as CEO and will leave his position before the end of 2022.
Pilkington has been CEO at KaFe Rocks for five years, and the company says he has taken KaFe Rocks forward with his leadership and contributions.
Pilkington said: “I’ve spoken often about my passion and love for KaFe Rocks, including as recently as the RocketFest Reunion in October and as I look back and reflect on my time here, it’s clear to me that this passion and love is as strong now as it ever was and I will remain the biggest supporter and cheerleader of the company from the outside.
“However, regardless of this passion, I’ve always believed that you’ve got to know when it’s the right time to let go, and I’ve always said from day one that when the right time comes for someone else to take this company forward, then I will stand out of the way because it’s the best thing for the company.
“It’s also the right time and the right thing to do for me – this role is extremely involved, and I’ve always endeavoured to give everything I can to make it a great place to work, but also a successful place of work too.”
Pilkington will fully vacate his position on December 31, and KaFe Rocks has begun to prepare for his departure by advertising for CEO applicants.
