“After a comprehensive succession planning process, the board unanimously selected Mr. Marabito to assume the position of CEO,” Siegal continued. “Rick joined the company as our Treasurer and Corporate Controller in 1994 and has served as CFO for the past 18 years, ensuring this will be a seamless transition.
