When I stepped down as CEO in mid-2010, it was our mutual goal to fully transition my responsibilities. That has been accomplished, and I look forward to devoting myself to other endeavors including those in private equity. I wish the Company, the Board and all my associates at CardioNet the very best.”
Joseph Capper, the Company’s President and CEO responded: “On behalf of myself and the Board, I would like to thank Randy for his dedication and commitment throughout his tenure with CardioNet.
