DENVER, N.C., March 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AIR T, INC. (AIRT), a diversified holding company organized as a portfolio of powerful businesses and financial assets that operate independently yet interrelatedly, today announced the resignation of Brett Reynolds, its Chief Financial Officer.
On March 25, 2019, Brett Reynolds, Air T Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, informed the Company that he expects to resign his employment with the Company on or about April 12, 2019 to accept a position at another company. Said Mr. Reynolds, "As a long-time medical device industry veteran, I have an opportunity to return to the medical device industry as the CFO of a US-based company that is a leader in laser micro manufacturing for the life sciences, and which was recently acquired by a private equity firm as a platform for an acquisition-driven strategy. As I was intending to remain with Air T for the long term, it is with mixed feelings that I make this decision. I will always fondly remember my time at Air T and will be cheering on the Company as it continues to execute and grow." Nick Swenson, Air T Chairman and CEO, said: "We are disappointed to see Brett leave, but understand the uniqueness of the opportunity in front of him; we thus fully support his decision and wish him well."
The Board of Directors has retained an executive search firm and has commenced a search for Mr. Reynold's successor. The Company's Chief Accounting Officer, Candice Otey, will continue as Chief Accounting Officer.
