Paul Sanders, the companys chief financial officer, is stepping in as interim CEO.
Getty Images, which supplies graphics and photographs via the Internet, was forced to lay off 300 people after its second-quarter revenue came in lower than expected. Revenue in the quarter was $115 million, compared with expectations of $120 million to $130 million. The Seattle company will employ about 2,000 people after the layoffs.
