Likely more than any other company in Silicon Valley, Evernote is happy to see the end of 2015.
According to TechCrunch, several high-level executives are set to leave the company in the coming weeks. Perhaps the most notable is Alex Pachikov, Evernote’s current vice president of partnerships, who has been with the company for more than nine years. Several of Pachikov’s lieutenants are set to follow their boss out of the company.
Also leaving Evernote is another one of its longtime veterans, Andrew Sinkov, who has been with the startup for the past eight years.
This news comes just a week after Evernote announced plans to shutdown Skitch, one of its more popular sideline apps. Earlier in the year, the company replaced longtime CEO Phil Libin with Chris O’Neill, a former Google executive.
However, as TechCrunch points out, despite the company’s tumultuous 2015, these departures don’t mean Evernote is in any sort of imminent trouble. Employee churn is a common part of any management change, and it’s possible the company will replace Pachikov and Sinkov with individuals better suited to guide the company towards an IPO.
