“Some might notice a bit of chatter speculating about this decision or timing. I can assure you that none could be true as this was a personal and private choice that in no way reflects any speculation or theories one might read – about me, opportunity, the company or its leadership,” he said.

Steven will be replaced by Julie Larson-Green who was previously the corporate Vice President.
