“I look forward to working with the leadership team and the employees to continue to create innovative solutions that help customers solve their business problems.”
Mr. Schrafft commented, “It has been a privilege to serve PGi for the past 25 years and I remain very excited about the future of the company. Over the years, we have transformed into a more focused, nimble and efficient organisation and I know that Don will continue to drive the business forward.”
