On September 10, 2013, we issued a press release announcing the appointment of Mr. Robert Carrigan as President and Chief Executive Officer of D&B, and as a member of our Board of Directors, all effective October 7, 2013.

Ms. Sara Mathew, our current Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, will step down from the Board and her executive positions effective October 7, 2013, and will continue with D&B in a non-executive role to facilitate a smooth leadership transition until she retires from D&B on December 31, 2013. Ms. Mathew previously announced her intention to retire in May 2013.

Mr. Christopher Coughlin, our current Lead Director, will assume the role of non-executive Chairman of the Board effective October 7, 2013, thereby separating the roles of Chairman and CEO.
