2004-2005 NARM Board Chairman Glen Ward left his position as President and CEO of Virgin Entertainment Group, effective Friday, September 17.

"During a conference call today, the NARM Board affirmed its strong support for Ward to remain as the Association's Chairman," said Acting President Jim Donio. "Glen has already contributed so much to the organization, and we are looking forward to continuing our work with him and focusing on the goals we've established."

"Obviously I am disappointed to be leaving such a great company as Virgin and the incredible team that I have been so privileged to work with," Ward stated. "That said, I leave with the comforting thought that during my six years in North AmericaŚthe last four as President and CEO of the companyŚwe implemented some revolutionary initiatives. These have benefited not only the company but also the retail and entertainment community as a whole. It is my intention to seek out a new challenge in this industry that I am so passionate about, and in the meantime to focus my attention on continuing to fulfill my duties as this year's Chairman of NARM."
