George Babich, Interim Chief Executive Officer and President, stated, "As I noted during Checkpoint's first quarter conference call, I was going to evaluate the matrix reporting and decision-making structures with the goal of creating a focused organization with clear lines of accountability while improving the customer experience.

That has been accomplished through the leadership changes announced. The end result will be a company that is more fiercely competitive and closer to its customers.
