The founder of independent label distribution firm INgrooves and its parent company Isolation Network, Robb McDaniels, will step down as the company’s CEO at the end of the month.

Confirming his departure, McDaniels told reporters: “Over the past thirteen years, I have led the expansion of Isolation Network into one of the most forward thinking media distribution, marketing and technology companies in the world, with more than 175 employees in five global offices. But I am an entrepreneur at heart and with the company in the capable hands of an exceptionally strong executive team, the time has come for me to move on to the next chapter in my life”.

The company’s Executive Chairman Jay Boberg added: “Robb is a rare visionary in the digital media industry, and we want to thank him for his tireless years of leadership building Isolation Network into one of the largest independently owned media distribution companies. We are confident that the executive team Robb has assembled will continue to deliver for our partners around the world”.

McDaniels’ co-founder Matt Burns will take over the CEO role on an interim basis until a new permanent chief can be found.
