(Bloomberg) -- Inc. co-Chief Executive Officer Keith Block is stepping down, putting founder Marc Benioff again atop the software maker as sole CEO.

Block, formerly the company’s chief operating officer, was named co-CEO with Benioff in August 2018. He will remain as an adviser, San Francisco-based Salesforce said Tuesday in a statement.

“Keith’s strategic thinking and operational excellence have deeply strengthened our company,” Benioff said in the statement.
