" Jim Kane's leadership has helped propel Southwest and his presence will be missed at the parent company, but Jim is clearly the executive best suited to bolster and transition the NPL management team," said Jeffrey W. Shaw, Chief Executive Officer of Southwest and Chairman of NPL's Board of Directors. Shaw concluded by stating, " Jim Kane comes to NPL following an extraordinary period of growth that has seen NPL nearly double in size over recent years.  He will be charged with making structural and transitional changes to match the increased size of the business.  We're very fortunate to have Jim, with his impressive 40-year track record in the industry, guide NPL forward.  Jim's demonstrated leadership abilities position NPL to meet its long-term strategic objectives."
