Another CEO change at CIA capital arm

Amit Yoran is leaving In-Q-Tel only four months after his appointment as CEO at the CIA's venture capital arm.

Only four months after his appointment, Amit Yoran has resigned as president and CEO of In-Q-Tel, the CIA venture capital arm charged with funding and developing new technologies for the intelligence community. Yoran, a former U.S. cybersecurity chief, resigned Monday for personal reasons, according to an In-Q-Tel statement.

Yoran took over in January from Gilman Louie, who left the CIA offshoot to start his own San Francisco-based venture capital firm. In-Q-Tel plans to name an acting or interim CEO later this week, according to the statement. At the same time, the organization will start a search for a permanent CEO, it said.
