miva_logo.gifCraig Pisaris-Henderson, who has presided over the company now known as Miva for a decade, is leaving the firm in a significant shake-up that has president Phillip Thune resigning, as well. Pisaris-Henderson was founder, chairman and CEO of Miva, which was formerly known as FindWhat.com. Both will keep their positions on the company’s board of directors.

Pisaris-Henderson has seen the company through drastic changes both in the industry and in the firm itself. Most recently, the firm overhauled and re-branded itself as Miva, after acquiring e-commerce firm Miva and European paid search player Espotting. The management change comes after Miva hired an investment bank to explore options, including a possible sale.

Former COO Peter Corrao has been appointed chief executive officer. Larry Weber, a marketing and digital media executive who serves on the MIVA board, has assumed the position of non-executive chairman. Seb Bishop, a Miva director, the company’s chief marketing officer and a founder of Espotting, will take the role of president. He’ll keep his CMO duties, as well.
