DOVER, Del., Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Two former members of the senior leadership of TransPerfect's technology team will lead Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware's Board of Directors. Former Senior Vice President of Technology Sales, Matt Hauser, a ten-year veteran of TransPerfect, and former President of TransPerfect's translation technology OneLink, Joe Kuefler, will join the CPBD Board of Directors and serve as members of the Executive Committee.
Both former employees resigned in the last month due to frustrations with the company's management after Delaware courts ordered the forced sale of the company and appointed a Custodian to oversee the process. Hauser and Kuefler hope to lead the advocacy group's efforts to highlight the hardships TransPerfect employees have endured throughout the court-ordered sale.
"Leaving TransPerfect was an incredibly hard decision, but I could no longer be a part of a company that disregarded its employees' long history of dedication," said Matt Hauser. "I am joining the Executive Committee with the hope of shedding light on this flawed process so that legislators can get involved to both stop the forced sale of TransPerfect and end the possibility of a similar fate being imposed on other companies incorporated in Delaware."
As Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware plans to continue to pressure legislators to review the TransPerfect sale process, the group will also extend its advocacy efforts across the region. "There are 4,000 American jobs on the line, and Delaware residents have overwhelmingly spoken out for their security," said CPBD President Miranda Wessinger. "We will use the momentum in Delaware and continue to broadcast the flawed decision by the Delaware courts until we save these jobs. We will not stop, and we are only getting stronger with our two new additions."
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware is a group made up of more than 2,200 members including employees of the global translation services company TransPerfect, as well as concerned Delaware residents, business executives and others. They formed in April of 2016 to focus on raising awareness with Delaware residents, elected officials, and other stakeholders about the issue.
