“We continue to execute on the restructuring plan we laid out in October 2012, which included the centralization of our sales and marketing efforts as well as the business development and technology functions of the organization. In addition, we have been strengthening our operational structure under the direction of our recently appointed chief operating officer, Dan Morefield,” explained Steven T. Plochocki, president and chief executive officer.
“All these initiatives are starting to gain traction, and we are confident in the anticipated benefits of these organizational changes.
