Feedster’s Scott Johnson Leaves

Another season, another shake-up. Feedster co-founder and chief technology officer Scott Johnson has left the San Francisco-based company, according to sources close to the company. The reasons for his departure are no clear, though some speculate it is due to the teething problems of a company grappling with hyper growth. Feedster was launched by Scott Johnson and François Schiettecatte in 2003.

This is the second high-level departure from the company. In early September, Scott Rafer, then the CEO announced that he was leaving the company. His departure came after Feedster managed to ink a deal with AOL and raised more money from Japanese company, Mitsui & Co. Chris Redlitz, Feedster’s Vice President, Sales and Marketing took over as the CEO President of the company.

Updated: Now a word from Feedster’s other co-founder François Schiettecatte, Chief Scientist, “There are several new business initiatives to be launched in 2006 that will highlight some of my development both domestically and internationally.”
