Given my own modest beginning in life, I have a deep connection to the purpose of Conn's mission in serving the unbanked consumer and look forward to leading our like-minded employees while meeting our shareholders' goals."Mr. Miller succeeds Theodore M. Wright, who will remain on the Conn's Board as Executive Chairman. Mr. Martin commented, "We are deeply appreciative of Theo's many years of service to Conn's as a board member and as Chairman and CEO.
