Slacker Founder Mudd Out as CEO

8/25/09

Slacker, the San Diego-based online music streaming service, confirms today that founding CEO Dennis Mudd has stepped down, handing over his duties to Jim Cady, Slacker’s president and chief operating officer. Anders Steele, a spokesman for the three-year-old startup, says Mudd will stay on Slacker’s board and plans to remain involved at the company. “With all the successes, such as the recent Verizon launch, Dennis decided it was a good time to hand the reins over to Cady, who is also an experienced CEO.” Under an agreement announced in July, Blackberry smartphone users can use the Verizon network to access Slacker Radio.
