"We are advancing the organization to achieve greater scale, expand margins and align the operating units to better serve our growing customer base. We believe that Randy's extensive experience in corporate realignments and establishing shared services structures will prove beneficial for us as we grow. He brings expertise in driving cost out, improving efficiencies and processes, and system integrations. With over 25 years of financial and executive management experience, we expect that Randy's track record and know-how will be advantageous as we continue to transform Global Power," commented Luis Manuel Ramírez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Global Power.
