Aziz Hasan, the CEO of Kickstarter, is stepping down from the role after three years. He announced his departure in a blog post on the site, reflecting on his time at the company and saying he was “so proud” of the “passionate, skilled and dedicated team.”

“To our team, the backers, the creators, this entire community—you are what makes Kickstarter the creative and amazing place it is,” he continued. “Often beautiful, sometimes unusual, and always inspiring. I close my tenure here with so much gratitude and a much deeper personal connection to how powerful and impactful creative projects are in the world.” He told Fast Company that “personal reflection” is the reason he’s saying goodbye to Kickstarter on April 4, wanting to spend more time with his wife and two young children.
