MindGeek CEO, owner of Pornhub, resigns


MindGeek, owner of Pornhub, said on Tuesday that chief executive Feras Antoon and chief executive David Tassillo had stepped down after more than a decade at the helm of the adult website company.

The executives’ resignation had been planned since early 2022, MindGeek said, adding that Antoon and Tassillo will remain shareholders in the company.

Luxembourg-based MindGeek, which also owns adult film production companies, has been embroiled in controversy in recent years.
