Mr. Stubbs will remain on the company's Board of Directors, continuing his role as Chairman of the Board. Mr. Stubbs will be replaced as Chief Executive Officer by S. Russell Stubbs, who will also retain his position as President of the company. Mr. Russell Stubbs has been with the company since 1986, most recently serving as President since January, 2010.
