Whispers about another major shakeup at Cyanogen were verified. The Android ROM distributor’s CEO, Lior Tal, has confirmed on Wednesday that it will move out of its longtime Seattle headquarters by the end of the year and has broken ties with co-founder Steve Kondik.

The purpose of the change is to improve the communication and performance of the team which will now operate under one roof. This consolidation effort will allow us to build in greater efficiencies and reduce restrictions in our product development lifecycle. Understandably some are unable to follow their role and relocate. We appreciate and value all of the amazing work these individuals have provided to the growth and success of Cyanogen.

Tal mentions that the company is “well funded” to continue its operations at its facilities in Palo Alto, California.

Kondik had recently expressed his grievances over how the company was managed by his founding partner, Kirt McMaster. McMaster was framed in a Google+ Post by Kondik as the one that brought new management to the company that led to a spate of recent downsizing measures.

There is still no public word on whether Kondik will be allowed to extricate assets of the community-driven CyanogenMod project from Cyanogen property, something he has wanted to do.
