YouTube CEO Chad Hurley to Move to Advisory Role

Chad Hurley, co-founder and CEO of YouTube, will move to an advisory role at the company, TechCrunch said.

Hurley is working on other projects and will focus on them when he becomes an adviser at the Google (GOOG) subsidiary, TechCrunch reported. He declined to give details on the other projects.

Hurley founded YouTube in 2005 along with Steve Chen and Jawed Karim. All three of the founders had previously worked at PayPal. Google bought the video website for $1.65 billion in 2006.

Salar Kamangar, former vice president of Web applications at Google, is currently handling most of YouTube's day-to-day activities, Hurley said.
