Roza, a CrossFit athlete for about a decade and founder of CrossFit Sanitas in Boulder, Colorado, will also be the company’s CEO, he said https://twitter.com/RozaEric/status/1275792231245455362 in a tweet on Wednesday.
He is also on the broad of several companies, including mental health startup SonderMind and wealth-management firm Crestone Capital, according to his LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD) profile.
“It is time for the founder to bid adieu,” CrossFit said (https://twitter.com/CrossFit/status/1275792126731673600) in a tweet, citing Glassman.
CrossFit did not immediately respond to Reuters request for comment. Reuters could not reach Glassman for a comment.
The founder-CEO faced a lot of flak for his controversial tweet, which also resulted in Adidas (OTC:ADDYY) AG-owned (DE:ADSGn) Reebok ending its 10-year-old partnership with CrossFit. Glassman had then apologized and announced his decision to step down.
