Randall Rothenberg is stepping down as CEO of the $30 million-revenue Interactive Advertising Bureau after 14 years, effective Sept. 15. David Cohen, IAB president since April, will succeed Rothenberg, who will remain executive chair through 2022, IAB said in a statement.

“As the industry continues to face some of its biggest challenges, we rely on IAB to bring us together, tackle the tough questions, and develop real, actionable solutions,” Rik van der Kooi, corporate vice president at Microsoft Advertising and interim chair of the IAB board said in a statement. “In this next chapter, we’ll still be able to rely on Randall’s wisdom and counsel, and we’ll have all the benefits and tremendous strengths David brings to the table.”
