Ms. Streeter said, "I look forward to working with John to achieve a seamless transition and I am excited to have the opportunity to drive the improving performance and cultural transition of the Company.  Profitably delivering quality and innovative products to our customers, continuing to reduce leverage and building shareholder value will be key priorities in the coming year."
