Steve Pritchitt, senior VP/GM of Navarre Entertainment Media, will exit the company tomorrow (Aug. 20), according to sources.

Pritchitt has headed New Hope, Minn.-based Navarre's music distribution operations since April 2001, when he succeeded Jim Chiado in that role. Pritchitt joined the company in early 2000 to head Navarre's now-defunct online distribution platform eSplice.

Pritchitt's departure comes little more than a week after Navarre announced a series of wide-ranging changes in its sales staff, including the layoffs of three regional sales reps.

A Navarre spokeswoman had no comment.
