“My decision to depart has been one of the toughest I've ever made,” Hulu chief executive Jason Kilar said in a post on the company's website.
“I am currently working with the Board to ensure there is ample runway to manage this transition.”
Hulu CTO Rich Tom will exit along a similar timeline, according to Kilar.
“Rich and I have been fortunate to build and innovate alongside each other these past 5-plus years and our plan is to do more of that on the road ahead,” Kilar said.
Kilar described his Hulu journey, beginning with a move to California and a walk into an empty office suite in July of 2007.
“We have grown from a few hundred thousand in revenue in 2007 to generating almost US$700 million in revenue in 2012 alone,” he said.
