I have witnessed his development over the past 18 years, and I am certain of his commitment to the employees of Scandrill… I am also very confident of Neil Pierce’s ability to assume John Irby’s role as VP operations, and I am very proud of Neil’s service to Scandrill. He, too, will be a superb leader.”
