red violet Executive Chairman Michael Brauser Steps Down from Board; Vice Chairman and CEO Derek Dubner Appointed Interim Chairman

BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 10, 2018-- Red Violet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDVT), a leading information solutions provider, today announced that Executive Chairman Michael Brauser has resigned from the red violet Board of Directors, effective immediately. The red violet Board of Directors has accepted his resignation and appointed Vice Chairman and CEO Derek Dubner interim Chairman, effective immediately.

“It has been a great privilege to serve as the Executive Chairman of this extraordinary company. On September 7, 2018, I was named in an SEC civil lawsuit, along with multiple parties, in regard to several investments I have made in the past. The allegations against me are unrelated to, and do not involve, red violet and are completely baseless and I will defend the case vigorously,” stated Michael Brauser. “Notwithstanding, so that my involvement in this suit does not serve as a distraction to the incredible progress of the company, I am resigning from the Board and my executive chairman position, relinquishing my management and oversight of day-to-day activities of the company. While it saddens me to do so, this is in the best interest of the company during this period as it continues to expand on its path to profitability.”
