“Since I assumed the CEO role two years ago, Sabrina has been an instrumental partner in helping the company transition to a new leadership team. With that period of transition behind us, Sabrina and I agreed that this was an appropriate time for a change in the organization and for her to pursue the next chapter in her career.
