        Four employees of ViewSource Media in Springdale have purchased a majority share of the company from the family of its late owner.

        The new owner group includes CEO Philip Russell, president Kierstin Robbins, Gary Sanders and Mike Tittel. They have acquired 75 percent of the Internet design company from the family of founder John Harris, who died March 31.

        Terms of the purchase were not disclosed. The company has seven employees, plus several part-time employees and contractors.

        “John laid out a good foundation for us. He was a man of vision,” Mr. Russell said. “He basically took very creative designs and blended them with technology to develop solutions for his customers.”

        The company will continue to focus on the Internet as a business tool. It has developed Web sites for Procter & Gamble Co., Magnode Corp., Graeter's and the Contemporary Arts Center.
