his strong governance experience, into our plans for enhancing Navigant
shareholder value,” stated Julie Howard, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
“His extensive healthcare expertise will be instrumental as we continue to

serves as Board Chair for the Committee on JOBS, an organization that brings
employment to the San Francisco Bay area.

Howard continued, “In addition, I would like to thank Peter for his
long-standing service as a valuable member of the Board and his leadership on
several Board committees over the years. Peter helped guide the Firm through
significant organizational change, including strengthening the financial
health and reputation of the organization, growing the Firm both organically
and acquisitively and positioning Navigant to continue delivering shareholder
value. We are grateful for his contributions and wish him well in his future

Pond, founder and General Partner of Alta Equity Partners, a venture capital
firm, previously held the title of Midwest Head of Investment Banking for
Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette. He is Chairman of the Board at Maximus, Inc. and

“Serving on Navigant’s board for the last 17 years has been an honor,” said

difficult economic and evolving regulatory environments. I am particularly
proud of how the Firm has deftly managed through significant change during my
tenure and built a strong platform to support future growth.”
