CSIdentity's Morrow Steps Aside to Make Way for New CEO
William Morrow, CEO of Austin-based CSIdentity Corporation, announced that he is stepping aside to become chairman. He will be succeeded by Joe C. Ross, the company’s current president, who will serve as interim CEO while an executive search firm helps identify a permanent replacement.
Morrow announced his decision at an internal meeting, in which he told CSIdentity’s employees about his recent bout with cancer and his changing focus.
“The good news is, I won,” Morrow said. “I am cancer-free and have been since December 2009. Over the past months, I have spent a lot of time considering what I want to do with rest of my life. I plan to take the summer off to immerse myself in my family and begin thinking about my next professional passion.”
Morrow assured employees that he will remain active as CSIdentity’s chairman, working with the board to grow the company and support its efforts.
