"Sunrise and our board are committed to both a solidified senior management team and to an excellent but leaner organization. We recently announced my commitment to continue to serve as CEO during the coming years, and today we announced Greg Neeb's similar commitment to work alongside me to lead the Sunrise management team as we work to continue strengthening all aspects of our operations. As part of our dual theme of an excellent and lean team, we are combining our CFO and CAO roles under the leadership of our new CFO, Marc Richards. Mark and I have worked together for years and he has served as our chief accounting officer for the last 18 months. Julie Pangelinan, who turned a very troubled operation into a smooth running machine, will be leaving Sunrise in early March."
