With Laurence joining our team as CFO, we have a very strong team in place. Laurence brings a unique skill set across technology, finance, and strategy. I am confident we will be able to build on the strong performance over the last few years and continue successfully executing our strategic plan, delivering significant value as we enter our next phase of growth.”
