    Overstock.com President and CFO Lindsey Resigns
    Thu August 21, 2003 09:11 AM ET
    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Online discount retailer Overstock.com Inc.OSTK.O on Thursday said that Jason Lindsey has resigned as president and chief financial officer, citing personal reasons.
    Patrick Byrne, the company's chairman and chief executive, will reassume the role of president and David Chidester Overstock.com's controller, will serve as acting CFO, the company said.

    Lindsey had served as Overstock.com's CFO since the company was launched in 1999. He was named president in April 2003.

    Patrick back at the helm should shake up those B-a-HO's picking Overstock's pockets.

    It must be tough being a CEO - there are always these personal problems that force them to quit high paying jobs...

    My beef with Shawn and crew was their refusal to display their top money earners in each of their DRM categories. They are hell bent on turning those showpieces into Dollar store items. QTY sold rule forces cheapskate sales.

    I'm no Warren Buffet, but OS make a huge mistake in a online world by concentrating on music-video and media sales. Put them right up against the top folks like Amazon with a non-profit item... let alone the hundreds of Freeloaders stealing this same stuff off the P2P networks. Heads should roll in purchasing for those authorizing those truckloads of media goods that got shoved up O/S butt by shrewd bankrupsy sellers.


    Turned the brand name closeout leader into a media dollar store for cheap loss leader sales. Bet the BHO's hovered over all those media sale keywords like Vultures. Get back to what your known for OS. Good Chit Cheap

    Haiko I'm surprised Shawn hasn't called me since just after they announced filing suit against some BHO's. Sure does seem their boss man is taking action to get HIS ebiz plan back in action.

    They should fire all the folks responsible for enabling the parasite pilfering. And they should sue them to recover the bonuses if they collected based on parasite 'sales'.
