Acquisitions executive departure

Ryan Bertucci, vice president of acquisitions, has accepted a new position with an unaffiliated company and resigned his position with the Company as of Friday, April 6, 2012. Ryan joined the Company’s predecessor in 2007 and was named vice president of acquisitions at the Company’s IPO in February 2011. “Ryan has done a great job in sorting through the hundreds of acquisition deals we’ve looked at over the past year,” said Hansen. “We’re certainly going to miss him but he has left us with a pipeline full of identified targets.”
