We thank Brad for his exemplary service to the company and wish him a happy and well-earned retirement.”

“We are delighted that Joe Hartz, a proven leader with deep industry and company experience, will be succeeding Brad,” Walsh adds. “We are confident that Joe will continue to excel in his new role and serve the company with distinction, as he has for over 30 years.”
