Evernote Crowns Former Google X Executive as CEO - Digits - WSJ

Perhaps some noteworthy changes ahead for Evernote
"Note-taking app maker Evernote is passing the CEO crown to an executive from Google after 10 years and $300 million in venture capital raised.

Chris O’Neill, a former executive at the Google X research facility, will join as chief executive of Evernote, the company said Monday. He takes over from Phil Libin, who co-founded the company and helped it grow into a global business with more than 150 million users. Libin will remain as Evernote’s executive chairman."

"In his new role, Libin said he will turn to working day-to-day on the product. One big priority, he said, will be to build new features — and even a new line of products — aimed at workplace collaboration. “If there is one thing I wish we would have done sooner is taking the collaborative uses case for Evernote much more seriously,” he said. “We’ve been working on it a lot recently but I wish we would have done it three years earlier.”"
