The world’s largest social media company LinkedIn is about to get a new CEO.
The company announced Monday that Daniel Linn, who previously led the company’s digital media and technology team, will step down as CEO.
Linn, 61, joins the company after a two-year tenure that saw the company grow from 4 million users in 2012 to more than 50 million users today.
His hiring will help the company strengthen its leadership position in the digital media space.
The move follows an announcement by the company that it will launch a new social media service that will offer a more personal and connected experience.
The service, called LinkedIn: The Social, will be available to users in the U.S. and Canada from September.
It will be powered by LinkedIn’s new platform, and it will be fully integrated with the LinkedIn website.
The company has also announced that it is expanding its business in more markets and adding more partners.
For instance, LinkedIn announced Monday it has partnered with Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, LinkedIn.com, Twitter and the Uptime service provider.
The new LinkedIn:The Social will be launched in the United Kingdom in the coming months.
