Mr. DeZwirek continued, "We want to thank Dennis for his dedication and integrity during his time at CECO, both as CEO and as a member of the Board. CECO is much stronger and in a better financial position due to Dennis' steady hand and operational leadership. Dennis was instrumental in CECO significantly reducing its debt, strengthening its leadership team and implementing strong processes and overall operational rigor. The entire CECO family extends their thanks to Dennis."
"I am very excited to be joining CECO as its CEO," said Mr. Gleason.
