Under Philippe Sanchez's leadership, PhotoWorks embarked on a comprehensive restructuring plan. This included the transformation of the Seattle based mail-order film processing business into a leading digital photography service focused on the creation of hard bound custom photo books. In the past year, PhotoWorks' photo books have been acclaimed by national press and considered among the elite in the category. For the first 6 months of fiscal year 2006, the company reported that digital sales grew to $3.6M, an 86% increase over the same period last year that largely outpaced the rest of the competition.

"We thank Philippe for his great job of turning PhotoWorks into a fast growing company again, and we look forward to his continued contribution as a member of the Board," said Joseph W. Waechter, PhotoWorks' Chairman, who will act as interim CEO until a successor for Sanchez is appointed.
