He went into your profile in the admin panel & changed the password.

I don't think that is possible. I am the founder and he's only admin.

Correct, Admins cannot modify the founder password. Even though it may say the information was updated, the password update was most likely ignored.

The founder accounts password can only be changed by the founder and anyone with access to the founder account.

Well that can't really be possible, the log may show that 'he tried to changed the founder's profile' but he can't change it through the admin panel, it may be an attempt there when he had an admin access, the only way is that may have cracked your password by trying to log in to your founder account, any way, have you tried the standard procedure in regaining your founder password?
