Dave Scigliano, the CEO of Crystal Flash who spent the last 26 years with the company, and Tom Fehsenfeld, third-generation chairman of the family-owned company, both announced their retirement.

Tom Olive was hired as Scigliano’s successor. Olive, 52, will serve as Crystal Flash’s president and CEO. Scigliano and Fehsenfeld plan to take positions on the company’s board of directors.
