“He is an experienced and highly principled leader, mentor, colleague and friend and has created tremendous value for our company and our shareholders. Chris’ guidance has been especially critical as he has had a significant impact on our strategic direction, growth and financial success. Chris leaves behind a tremendous legacy and I want to personally wish him all the best as he prepares for the next chapter of his life.”
