From Richmond BizSense:
The original CEO of a well-known local IT firm is suing the company he founded, claiming he was pushed out by “ambush” to clear a path for an allegedly illegitimate sale.
Michael Pirron last week filed suit against Impact Makers, which he launched in Richmond in 2006 and helped grow to upwards of $20 million in revenue annually.
The company gained notice for routinely landing on lists of Richmond’s fastest-growing companies and for gifting its equity shares and the proceeds of its eventual sale to two local charities.
Also named as defendants in the suit are company executives and directors Karen Coleman, Teresa DiMarco, Scott Walker, W. Wilhelm Rabke, Andrew Wolff, Rodney Willett and Marianne Vermeer.
