Jack Mohr has announced he's leaving his position as Chief Investment Strategist of TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST) and co-manager of Jim Cramer’s Charitable Trust portfolio to pursue opportunities outside of the media domain.

During his time at TheStreet, Mohr provided strategic insight to the site’s audience of over 20 million monthly visitors while actively co-managing Cramer’s Charitable Trust portfolio, Action Alerts Plus. He previously served as Director of Research for CNBC’s "Mad Money" with Cramer and began his career at Barclays.

Mohr discussed his decision to leave with Benzinga in an interview following his departure.

He spoke highly of Cramer, the former hedge fund manager turned media personality who ranks among the most recognizable figures in financial news.

"The last three years have provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime," said Mohr. "Jim was a great mentor. Not only is he one of the best stock pickers in the world, but his integrity, transparency and advocacy for the individual investor are unparalleled. I'm proud of the work we did together, and feel I'm leaving TheStreet with a strong foundation in place and a great team to take things to the next level."

During his tenure, Mohr was highly sought after for business and investment analysis, specifically around cutting edge trends. He regularly appeared on CNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS and Fox Business among other outlets and was a keynote speaker at numerous industry events across the country. He was recently featured among Benzinga's "Financial Twitter Names to Follow in 2017."

"After some deep reflection," said Mohr. "I have decided that there are some things I want to do next that are hard to accomplish inside a media company. Investment opportunities are emerging in multiple sectors that are highly compelling, and I want to pursue these these opportunities from a different vantage point."
