I regretfully announce that Joey Sprague is stepping down as Executive Officer of SWS effective August 31. Since assuming the role of Executive Officer three years ago, Joey has recruited and supervised an excellent staff and made significant contributions to SWS.
We want to start the search for a new Executive Officer as soon as possible.
