Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain  Officers, Compensatory arrangements of Certain Officers


Mobiquity Technologies Inc. announced today that Thomas Arnost is stepping down from Mobiquity’s Board of Directors as Executive Chairman effective October 29, 2019.


Mr. Arnost spent eight years on Mobiquity’s Board of Directors, ascending to Chairman in 2014. During his tenure, Mr. Arnost guided the Mobiquity team through two successful pivots from legacy businesses, transitioning to one of the fastest growing programmatic advertising and audience data companies. As Chairman, he helped establish new markets, complete the acquisition of Advangelists LLC and oversaw expansion of the corporate leadership team.


“I am very proud of Mobiquity’s expansion while in the Chairman’s role, and I have full confidence in the future of the organization,” said Mr. Arnost. “I am leaving Mobiquity well poised for a bright future and as I transition out of my Chairman’s position, I still very much look forward to working with the team in a non- executive role.”


Mr. Arnost has cited personal reasons for stepping down from his position but will continue to advise and assist on an as needed basis.


“Mr. Arnost was integral to the success of our corporate transition,” said Dean Julia, CEO of Mobiquity. “He opened many doors for our company and provided strong oversight throughout market changes. His dedication and partnership have been invaluable.”


Mobiquity is exploring an uplisting to a national exchange and will be interviewing several independent candidates to fill the required roles and committees.








Pursuant to the requirements of Section 13 or 15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned, thereunto duly authorized.
