Over the last ten years, Tim has built a world-class team that, under his leadership, established a leading market position in the industry, became a trusted partner solving difficult problems for its customers, and created substantial shareholder value. He developed a company culture of respect, hard work and integrity that represents a strong foundation for future growth. His leadership leaves us with a strong pipeline of new technologies and market opportunities, and we look forward to Tim's continued leadership as we execute our succession plan, and appreciate his willingness to serve in an advisory capacity during the transition."
