Ask.com CEO Steps Down, Kiplinger.com Names Managing Editor

safka.jpgThere’s been some shakeups in the digital world today, with one Web site losing a CEO and another gaining a top editor.

IAC-owned search engine Ask.com, said yesterday that CEO Jim Safka (left) is stepping down for personal reasons.

Safka, who was named to the post in January of last year, also served as CEO of IAC’s Primal Ventures division, which oversaw IAC’s investment in new business opportunities. Ask.com’s president Scott Garell will reportedly be stepping in as CEO.

“Jim has decided to move on from Ask.com, following the recent passing of his brother which has led him to re-evaluate his personal and professional priorities,” Ask.com said in a statement, according to Marketwatch. (Our calls to IAC were not returned.)
