“By leveraging technical knowledge with excellent customer service, we’re going to continue placing WHEATON at the forefront of the industry,” he added.
Mr. Drozdow, after leading WHEATON since 1996, will become the chief executive officer and will continue to have an active role at WHEATON, working closely with Mr. Brinster on matters pertaining to strategy, key industry relationships, finance, budgets and acquisitions. “Wayne is a great business leader,” said Mr. Drozdow. “He understands the science of our markets, knows our industry and identifies with our approach to customers.”
