Tim Stokely, the founder of OnlyFans, announced on Monday that he is stepping down as CEO of the video subscription company.
Amrapali Gan, who joined OnlyFans as its chief marketing and communications officer last year, will take over as CEO.
“I’m passing the baton on to a colleague and a friend, who has the vision and drive to help the organization reach tremendous potential,” Stokely said.
Before OnlyFans, Gan was vice president of marketing for the Cannabis Cafe in Los Angeles — the first cannabis restaurant in the United States — where she worked on its launch and rebranding after it split from the Lowell Herb Co.
OnlyFans began as a platform for celebrities and sports personalities to produce videos and photos to share with subscribing fans.
But the UK-based company became known for sexually explicit and other adult content.
OnlyFans says it has paid out more than $5 billion to 1.5 million creators to date.
