First, it’s worth clarifying that Linus is a youtuber who has been on the platform pretty much since its inception making videos on technology, hardware, and similar tutorials. It was successful and today it is one of the reference points of the area, such is the case of its he channel Technical Tips Linus has more than 15 million subscribers.

In recent days, the 36-year-old youtuber has announced that he will step down as CEO of his companies Linus Media Group, Creator Warehouse and Floatplane Media because he is exhausted and does not see himself prepared to lead businesses.

A while ago, Linus had the opportunity to sell Linus Media Group (built in 2013 in a garage) for $100 million, but he refused because he didn’t want to abandon his project. By this we say that he will not be leaving the company, but he will step aside in regards to his corporate leadership.

He hired his boss

He and his wife Yvonne Ho will remain the company’s sole shareholders. Linus will continue to make videos, he just won’t be the CEO of his company anymore.

For this he hired Terren Tong, a boss he worked for years ago when it was part of the now defunct computer sales company NCIX. From July 1, Tong will take over from him and will only think and implement the content.

In this way, the youtuber will somehow return to his origins, since he started making technological videos right at NCIX. Changes in your activity won’t be reflected in what users continue to see.

Sebastian started his career about 10 years ago.
