"I believe this is the right time to transition from my role as president, and I have the utmost confidence in Leon Kuperman," says David Zinberg, who remains CEO. “Leon has done a superb job over the past two years, and over the past 6 months has become increasingly involved in our investor relations activities as well. I look forward to focusing my energies more intently on purchasing and overseeing our key strategic initiatives as I continue to work closely with the management team to grow the business."
