In an Oct. 3 statement, Myers said that Banyard is leaving “to accept another professional opportunity.”

Chief legal officer Andrean Horton will become interim CEO on Oct. 25, the statement also said.

Myers plans to engage a global executive search firm to assist in finding a new president and CEO.
