Report: Lisa Sharples to leave AllRecipes.com in March

Lisa Sharples

Lisa Sharples is stepping down as the top chef at AllRecipes.com, the popular online recipe service that was acquired 13 months ago by Meredith for $175 million.

All Things D reports that Sharples notified staffers on Thursday that she will be leaving the company at the end of March to spend more time with her family.

Sharples, who served as president, previously held executive roles at Garden.com and Classmates.com.

AllRecipes was sold to Reader’s Digest Association for $66 million in 2006, later acquired by Meredith. At the time of the sale to Meredith, it boasted about 24 million unique visitors.

Sharples marks the latest senior exec to move on from AllRecipes.com, following the departure of senior vice president Amber Dunn who left for Cheezburger last fall.
