The CEO and co-founder of popular luggage startup Away is resigning just days after her internal Slack messages were made public.
The former CEO will remain on Away’s board and will act as executive chairman of the company.
“Employees were asked to work exceedingly long hours and limit their paid time off,” The Verge wrote.
In a statement published after The Verge’s initial report, Korey said that she was “appalled and embarrassed” to read her messages.
“Over the past eight months, I led the recruiting process that led us to bringing on Stuart, and I’m so thrilled for him to join the company as Away’s CEO,” Korey wrote.
