"We are excited to have Jon join our team," Ewert commented. "His experience and accomplishments span not only finance and accounting, but also global retailing, risk management and real estate.
"His strengths extend well beyond the numbers and include building organizations, leading acquisitions, developing strategic initiatives and developing people. We look forward to his contributions to further enhancing our organization and its strategies as we continue to grow our operations."
"I would also like to thank Diana Wilson, who acted as Interim Chief Financial Officer," added Ewert. "Diana has been a key member of our accounting and finance team for 14 years and will continue to benefit our organization as Executive Vice President of Finance and Accounting."
