Modem Media announced its board of directors has approved the transition of G.M. O'Connell from chairman to non-executive chairman of the board of directors, effective January 1, 2004. O'Connell will continue his responsibilities and duties as chairman of the board, but will resign as a full-time employee of Modem Media, following which the company will engage him as a part-time consultant. "Serving as non-executive chairman provides the best of both worlds for me," said O'Connell in a press release. "I'm so confident in the future of Modem Media, and in the great people who will take it forward. This new role allows me to continue to direct and influence the future of the company I founded, while providing me with more time to spend and travel with my young family."
