Tim Stokely, the 38-year-old founder and CEO of OnlyFans, abruptly announced on Tuesday that he is stepping down as CEO with immediate effect.
The company’s chief marketing and communications officer, Amrapali Gan, has taken over Stokely’s role.
In an Instagram post, Stokely stated that Gan has a “strong passion” for OnlyFans. OnlyFans was started in 2016 by Stokely, his brother Thomas, and their father Guy, and it has since grown into a popular platform for creators to share content and earn money directly from their followers. It is well-known for hosting adult-oriented content.
“I’m passing the baton on to a colleague and a friend, who has the vision and drive to help the organisation reach tremendous potential,” Stokely wrote in his post.

Gan, 36, has only been with OnlyFans since 2020, according to a press announcement.
She was vice president of marketing for “the first cannabis restaurant in the United States” before joining OnlyFans. This is the Cannabis Café in West Hollywood, California, according to Gan’s LinkedIn. Tallie Spencer of Insider visited the café, which has “a cannabis menu made up of edibles, pre-rolled joints, and more” on its menu.
