"Having the opportunity to realize a lifelong dream of working with my family is incredibly satisfying," Mr. Kraft said. "My continued involvement in Media Horizons, through my position of board chairman and advisor, is testament to my belief in the strength of the management team and to their vision for the future growth of the company I founded."

Other people on the management team include Scott Kellerman, senior vice president/partner; Tom Reynolds, senior vice president/partner; Veronica Pall, chief financial officer; Pete Burgess, executive vice president; Joyce Beggs, president of the catalog division; Walter Chistoni, vice president of management; Liz Russell, vice president of operations; and Susan Zekala, senior director of creative and production services."

"Alan's presence on a daily basis will be missed, but his ongoing involvement with the company as a shareholder and Director will be of great value to our management team, Mr. Kabakow said. "We wish him nothing but success and personal fulfillment in his new endeavors."
