As we had more interaction, it was clear that our people and business enterprise would benefit greatly from David’s strong intellect and leadership qualities,” stated Lewallen.

Lewallen also added, “I had the most interaction with Shawn during the process, and I was very happy to learn of Shawn’s lengthy and impressive experience with one of the world’s largest aluminum extruders; that will be invaluable to our operations. Shawn has tremendous financial skills and practical operations experience, and I am thrilled to have him as a “running mate” as our CFO. I am honored to serve as CEO and work alongside these two men, and I expect great things for our people and our customers.”
