“Len, Steve and their venture firms have been great champions of Control4, from the initial phases of the company’s development, through our transition to a disciplined and focused public company,” explained Martin Plaehn, Control4’s Chairman and CEO. “We’re grateful for their passion, commitment and counsel to help make Control4 a growing, profitable and successful leader in the home automation space.”

As part of the ongoing transition from a venture-backed start-up to a public company, James Caudill, a current board member, will be replacing Mr. Jordan on the Company’s Audit Committee, and Jeremy Jaech, a current board member, will be replacing Messrs.
