The new leadership structure is part of the business’ ongoing evolution as it continues seeking new growth opportunities, he said.    

“When our customers come to us with a problem, we see it as an opportunity to be creative and add value,” CEO Todd Gilbert said. “With these latest promotions, we’re elevating our leaders and empowering every employee to deliver on the Valley Value.”
