Ingram Content Group CEO Stepping Down

Skip Prichard says he plans to step down June 8th.

The CEO of Ingram Content Group announced Friday he’s stepping down in just a matter of weeks.

Skip Prichard has been at the helm of the LaVergne-based book distributor for five years, overseeing a reorganization of the company. He says in a statement that “part of leadership is knowing when you have completed the mission.”

The timing, Prichard says, has to do with John Ingram wanting to assume a more direct role in his family-owned company.
