WebMD releases co-CEO, top board member

Published on .

Online health services network WebMD said Netscape co-founder Jim Clark resigned from its board of directors, as did Jeffrey Arnold, who resigned both his co-CEO title and board position. Martin Wygod, formerly chairman of Medical Manager and CareInsite, two companies recently acquired by WebMD, now is sole CEO of the Atlanta-based company. WebMD did not give any explanations for the resignations. Mr. Clark helped start Healtheon, a medical information Web site that has since merged with WebMD. The departures also come on the heels of the resignation of Chief Technology Officer Pavan Nigam, who co-founded Healtheon in 1996.
