"We salute the outstanding contributions that Ron Klein has made to our company for nearly four decades. I respect him as a colleague and value him as a friend. In every position over the years, Ron has led with passion. He keenly understands customers' needs and how to serve them through stores that are customer-centric and locally focused. Ron and Peter have worked side-by-side for many years, which allows us to move forward without skippinga beat," he added.
