OAKLAND, Calif. , Sept. 20, 2019 /CNW/ -- npm, Inc., the open source JavaScript developer tools provider and operator of the world's largest software registry, today announced its CEO, Bryan Bogensberger , has resigned effective immediately to pursue new opportunities.

npm's Board of directors have commenced a search for a new CEO. The company's leadership will be managed collaboratively by a team comprised of senior npm executives.

During his time at npm, Bogensberger put the company on a path to ensure the continued availability of the world's largest software registry, and the introduction of new services and enhancements to meet the needs of its 11 million users. 

"Bryan brought his deep experience in guiding technology companies to position npm for future growth," said Isaac Schlueter , founder of npm. "On behalf of the board of directors and my colleagues at npm, we wish him the best."

"I am proud of the complete transformation we have been able to make in such a short period of time," said Bogensberger. "I wish this completely revamped, passionate team monumental success in the years to come!"

"npm has long lived in the hearts of developers, who have come to rely on the low-friction experience it was designed to provide. By expanding the focus beyond individual developers to enterprises in 2019, npm is poised to help them benefit from the same efficiencies in 2020 and beyond."
