I am particularly excited to work with President Martinez and CEO Marcus, who truly understand what it takes to implement the key systems necessary to enable the Company to win in today's high-tech, ultra-competitive marketing and sales environment. I share the Company's belief that developing and strengthening the Company's brand, infrastructure, abilities to acquire and retain customer loyalty, and enhancing customer experience is critical in meeting the Company's objective of delivering value and success to its customers and shareholders."
