Robert Sillerman Officially Steps Down as CEO of SFX, Says Farewells

On March 29th, Robert Sillerman officially stepped down as CEO of SFX Entertainment. SFX Entertainment was founded in 2012 and was made to be a live events conglomerate founded by the media entrepreneur Robert F.X. Sillerman. Sillerman was under scrutiny after admitting he did not know much about the industry he bought into.

In Sillerman's farewell letter to his fellow employees, Sillerman stresses the importance of refocusing their energies.

Read Robert Sillerman's farewell letter to his staff below:

As most of you are aware Thursday, March 31, will be my last day as CEO of SFX. I will remain as Chairman of the Board. The disappointment I know we all feel should not be the lasting impression that remains. We had a bold vision, a revolutionary one. That we stumbled along the way can never detract from the energy and hope that brought us all together. As we enter this next phase, despite the place we find ourselves, there is much to be proud of. It remains incumbent on all of us to refocus our energies and find the path to success that is out there. I am confident that with renewed discipline combined with passion and creativity that our original goals can and will be met.

As Chairman I remain available to help in any way that I can. I maintain both an emotional and financial interest in our company’s success and intend to participate as and when called upon. As such this is anything but a goodbye; rather a reset of roles with a renewed emphasis on collaborative success. While we aren’t where we wanted to be, and will be, it has been an honor and a pleasure.
