Our new innovations and the increasing needs from our partners led us to look for an addition to our team who will fit in with our values of differentiation and exceptional service, and we consider ourselves very fortunate that we were able to find someone of Frank’s caliber to fulfill this role. I’m confident that Frank will play a key role in providing and implementing high quality opportunities and solutions for our current and future partners.”
