RealNetworks CFO Stepping Down

1/5/12Follow @curtwoodward

RealNetworks, which recently installed a new CEO, is looking for a new financial chief. The company says CFO Michael Eggers is leaving effective April 15, via a filing with federal regulators (hat tip to John Cook at GeekWire for spotting).

Eggers has been at RealNetworks (NASDAQ: RNWK) for 14 years, according to the SEC filing—quite a tenure at a company that has been hanging around since the dot-com era.

RealNetworks CEO Thomas Nielsen, a former vice president at Adobe, took over the top job in early November. He replaced Bob Kimball, who had been at Real for about a dozen years and presided over a major restructuring period that included layoffs and the spinoff of the Rhapsody music joint venture.
