Ashley Madison CEO Quits Job In Light Of Extramarital Affairs Due To Hack Scandal
Oh, the irony…
The CEO of adultery website Ashley Madison is stepping down in the wake of the massive breach of the company’s computer systems and outing of millions of its members.
Avid Life Media Inc., Ashley Madison’s parent company, says Noel Biderman’s departure was a mutual decision and in the best interest of the company.
It was also revealed that Biderman himself used the site – and had engaged in multiple affairs with other women.
Touting himself as the The King of Infidelity, Biderman built his livelihood around the unconventional philosophy that cheating is a natural part of married life — yet he claimed he was a devoted husband, and his wife of 12 years says she would be devastated if he was unfaithful.
Noel and Amanda Biderman say they do not practice what they preach but simply are smart entrepreneurs seizing an untapped market.
‘I am printing money, I don’t deny it,’ Biderman told the New York Post in 2014.
‘That’s what happens when you build a taboo-focused business.’
Their privately held Toronto holding company, Avid Life Media Inc., grossed $115 million in earnings last year, according to tax documents and figures shared by Biderman with Forbes.
