Amrapali Gan is the new CEO of OnlyFans. After founder Tim Stokely stepped down from his position as CEO of the adult subscription site, 36-year-old Amrapali was announced as his replacement. The new CEO has announced that she has plans to make the website the world's "safest social media platform".
Amrapali is known as Ami or AG at her workplace. She joined the company18 months ago, and was till now working as the head of communications. Born and brought up in Mumbai, India, Amrapali has her own OnlyFans page for rescuing dogs and holidays.
As she took the position, Amrapali promised people that they will have an unparalleled experience as users of the site.
Based in California, Amrapali is unmarried and does not have any children. She said that she was enjoying the challenge of being in such a top position. She said that it was an exciting time for OnlyFans. Further, she added, "I will continue to be dedicated to our community and look forward to creating unparalleled experiences for our creators and fans."
She added, "I am proud to assume this role. I look forward to continuing to work closely with our creator community to help them maximize control over and monetize their content. We are committed to being the safest social media platform in the world."
On December 21, Essex-based Stokely, 38, stepped down from his position as the CEO. He said he needed some time off to pursue different and new projects in life. He would only be an informal consultant for the website in the future. Tim is the founder of the adult website and created the service so that creators could share content for a subscription fee.
Even though OnlyFans has been in the market for only five years, it has managed to make some revolutionary changes in the adult industry. Fans pay a subscription fee a month for images from their favorite creators and the site gets a 20% commission from each payment.
The earning on the site boomed during the 2020 pandemic with a 42% increase in new accounts. There are almost 660,000 creators with 50 million users on the adult site world wide. OnlyFans has also boasted that it has paid creators more than 956 million pounds till date.
During the 2020 lockdown, British model Dannii Harwood became the first British user to make one million pounds from the adult service. She joined the site in 2019. However, not everyone has had a delightful experience while using the site.
