"Dan reassumes the leadership of this great company at a time of meaningful growth and strong financial performance, and the Board has every confidence that he is the best leader to continue executing our strategic plan," said Chris Kennedy, lead independent director of the board. "He has the right mix of familiarity, experience and passion for the company to lead us forward through this period of transition. Appointing Dan to this position will establish a tone at the top that the company's shareowners, employees, customers, and partners expect. In addition, Dan was instrumental in helping to shape the company's strategic plan, which has transformed our business and set us on the right path."

"I am committed to upholding our rich heritage and driving value for our four stakeholders: our shareowners, our employees, our customers, and the environment.
