Koss has been with the Prairie Du Sac, Wis. -chain for 23 years, spending the last four as CEO. He cited the desire to spend more time with his family as the reason for his departure.

“Joe has positively impacted so many facets of our company in his time with us, especially his leadership through this unprecedented set of circumstances we’ve successfully navigated recently,” said co-founder Craig Culver. “That said, we certainly know how important family is and fully support his decision to focus there.”

The company said it is currently seeking a new CEO.
