It looks as though Vudu, the troubled movie delivery set-top box maker, is in need of a new CEO. Valleywag reports that Mark Jung, the company’s CEO, is no longer listed on Vudu’s management page, and his LinkedIn profile lists his time at Vudu through November 2008 (as opposed to “present”).
Vudu laid off 15 percent of its staff in August. The company has never caught on with mass audiences, despite a price cuts for the device, 99-cent movie rentals, a super high-definition download option and the addition of adult content.
We’ve contacted the company for confirmation and details and will update this post as we learn more.
UPDATE: A Vudu spokesperson confirmed Jung’s departure and wrote us an email saying “Mark has left for personal reasons and Alain Rossmann, who is a founder and Chairman of the board is stepping in as Interim CEO.”
