Consumers have rediscovered the beauty of their landscapes and our future looks bright. I have been discussing this transition with our shareholders and board of directors for some time. We are fortunate to have shareholders and a board of directors who continue to support the mission and values of our family-owned company.”

“The Board thanks Miles for his 40 years of service,” said Board Co-Chairman Chris Kroes. “We are grateful for his leadership and commitment to our employees, customers, and consumers. I look forward to working with him in my role as co-chairman.”

The Board is conducting a search for a new CEO to take the role in 2021, to allow for a thoughtful transition. The Board is confident in the strong Monrovia management team in place.
