Friends of SES:
I am reaching out today to share some exciting news. The following press release announces Janet White’s retirement from SES, and the appointment of Kelly Cretti as her successor. You can find the details in the attachment. Janet was kind enough to share with me her intentions over a year ago, which allowed us to be very thoughtful and deliberate in planning this transition. As a result of this planning, Kelly has been with us since July, working closely with Janet to learn our business. They will continue to work together until Janet’s retirement in March 2017.
This transition is the capstone of a terrific 40 year career, the last 20 of which has been with SES. Needless to say, Janet leaves SES far better than she found it. This is a time to celebrate Janet’s career and the beginning of her next phase of life, and also a time of excitement for another step in the continuing evolution of SES, with Kelly assuming leadership of our Trust business. It is also a great time to reassure each of you that SES is deeper and stronger than it has ever been and our tradition of great service, solutions and partnership will continue uninterrupted.
I am sure you all join me in congratulating both Janet and Kelly.
