Jess Hay to Retire From Viad Corp's Board of Directors in 2013

PHOENIX, Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Viad Corp (NYSE: VVI) today announced the decision of Jess Hay, lead independent director, to retire from the Viad Board of Directors.  Mr. Hay, who has served as a director of Viad since 1981 and as lead independent director since 2005, will not stand for re-election at the Company's 2013 Annual Meeting of Shareholders on May 21, 2013.  

Paul B. Dykstra, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Viad, said, "The Viad Board greatly benefits from the leadership, wisdom and integrity of Jess Hay.  While his presence and innumerable contributions will be missed, we respect his decision to retire at the end of his term in May 2013 and wish him well."

Mr. Hay's retirement will bring to a close more than 30 years of remarkable service to the Company.  During his distinguished tenure, Mr. Hay has provided leadership and insight that were instrumental to the Company's successful implementation of many growth and change initiatives, as well as the achievement of on-going financial strength.  Mr. Hay said, "It has been my privilege to serve the Company and its shareholders and to work alongside my fellow Board members, past and present, whom I deeply respect.  I am confident that under the leadership of the Viad Board and management team, great opportunities are ahead for our businesses."

The Board, with the assistance of a nationally-recognized executive search firm, has initiated a search for a new director who will stand for election at the 2013 Annual Meeting.  Upon Mr. Hay's retirement, with the addition of the new director, the Board will be comprised of 9 highly-qualified and experienced directors, 8 of whom are independent.  The independent members of the Board appointed Richard H. Dozer as lead independent director effective May 21, 2013.  Mr. Dozer, a director since 2008, will serve a two-year term as lead independent director.
