"I also want to recognize and thank Ron for being an outstanding leader, consistently putting the good of our clients, the company, the industry and the well-being of employees as his highest priorities", said Shea. "Ron has been a strong, highly effective and responsible leader and we have been extremely fortunate to have had him as CEO and now as an executive advisor."
