She was first elected to the board in 2012 and has served on the compensation and nominating committees. Rapuano graduated from Yale University and holds a Chartered Financial Analyst professional designation. Rapuano's status as representative of one the Company's largest stockholders gives her important perspective as board Chair.

"Our board is committed to creating value for our stockholders and maximizing the opportunities for improvement in the business. We continue to believe we offer a great product in the market and will accelerate our transition to a more efficient cost structure and marketing approach," said Ms. Rapuano. 

The board also appointed Philip Livingston to serve as the Company's new Interim Chief Executive Officer.  Livingston was previously the Chief Executive Officer of LexisNexis Web Based Marketing Solutions from 1999 to 2013.  He has previously served on numerous boards of directors and his management experience includes President and CEO of Financial Executives International, CFO of Catalina Marketing Corporation, and CFO of Celestial Seasoning Inc.
