Mood Media, the worlds leading in-store media solutions company dedicated to elevating the Customer Experience, today announced that its President and CEO Steven K. Richards has informed the Board of Directors he intends to retire effective January 15, 2019, after more than five years leading the company.

Mr. Richards, 56, will remain with Mood Media as a Director Emeritus and Strategic Advisor to the Company and will be pursuing external opportunities to serve as a board member or operating partner with enterprises that can benefit from his transformational skills and experience. The Companys board has initiated an internal review and external search for a replacement and expects to announce a successor shortly.

Steve has led Mood through significant gains over the past five years and built a more effective global business that is far better positioned for growth and value creation, said David Sambur, Senior Partner at Apollo Global Management and a member of Mood Medias Board. We appreciate Steves leadership and look forward to his continued involvement with the company.

It has been my sincere honor to lead and serve Mood Media, Mr. Richards said. I am proud of the many accomplishments our team achieved during my tenure, especially in terms of becoming more acquisition focused, finding innovative solutions in Audio, Visual & Advertising products and services, and broadening Moods strategic direction to more effectively support client needs and enhance Customer Experiences, Mr. Richards added. I am confident that with ongoing stakeholder commitment and continued management execution, the Company will continue along its positive forward path.
