Mr. Connors’ resignation as a director was not the result of any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.

 

“John Connors has served on the Company’s Board since 2007 -- an incredible achievement for any board member in Silicon Valley,” said Doug Merritt, President and CEO of the Company. “His contributions to our Board have helped guide the Company from a scrappy data startup to the world’s first Data-to-Everything Platform, always focusing on our customer’s success. We are forever grateful for John’s outstanding leadership and we wish him the very best in his retirement. Thank you, John.”
