split in web application

I he the below string

dim k as string="Employee1, Boutros William Ton,Partner, Employee2, "

i am splitting this string as below :
  Dim NameValue As String =k
        Dim Nameelements() As String = NameValue.Split(New Char() {",  "}, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)

but the output is not correct

i need the output to be an array with 3 columns :
Employee1
Boutros William Ton,Partner
Employee2

use
.Split(New String() {", "}, StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries)

using the string not char (chars are only one char long, hence your problem) and note there is only one space after the "," not two as in your original attempt.
