    • They chose an interesting phrase ...... strengthen sales and marketing organization.

      If they have accomplished nothing productive and meaningful for shareholders in the past, sticking some used chewed gum to it would strengthen it !! Imho of course.

      Seems to be that with each announcement they have added one stripe of Vice President or Executive Vice President. Been that way for years. SO, if the past team of VPs and Exec VPs has not been able to produce meaningful sales is it credible to anticipate the addition of more Executive VPs will result in a a different outcome sans something more substantive ? Why ??

      So Tom Myers has been some flavor of VP since 2011. Results ?? The Dave was some hoo hoo ... results before he bailed ?? Some hot shot [and his wife indirectly] joined the team a couple years ago with Red's spiddledripping fanfare ... results ? Singer was Exec VP for many years. Results ?? And then of course we cannot so quickly forget the fantabulous job the Head Honcho did since 1993 !!! Results ??

      Anyone here from Missouri ? The SHOW ME State ? Can you still hear Rod Tidwell ?

      SHOW ME THE MONEY !!! The difference between him and PURE ? He had proven talent and results !

    • So, no editorial comment? Are you happy with the performance of Tom Myers to date?

      Then there's the 5% holder question still hanging out there....
