PEPPES CEO KIM JONAH is resigning amid a sexual harassment and retaliation investigation, his company confirmed on Thursday.
In a statement, the company said: “Today, Peeps Inc. has learned that Mr. Jonah, the CEO of Peeps Investments, has resigned from his position as Peeps’ senior advisor and has accepted a new position in PEPS’ board of directors.”
The resignation follows Peeps filing a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission, a Peeps spokesman confirmed.
In August, Jonah was named the head of Peep Partners, an investment advisory company he co-founded with his wife.
It is one of two companies that Peeps manages, and the other is PEPS Investments, which manages investments for Peeps and other publicly traded companies.
A spokeswoman for Jonah did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the resignation.
A spokesman for PEPS said Jonah had accepted a position at the company.
He will remain as a PEPS advisor until further notice, the spokesman said.
