Erickson Incorporated, a global provider of aviation services, today announced changes to the composition of its board of directors that it believes strengthen its governance and reinforce its commitment to independence.
Gary Scott, a director of the Company since 2012, has been appointed Chairman of the Board, succeeding Quinn Morgan, who remains a member of the Board.
Jeff Roberts, recently retained as the Company’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective April 1, 2015 will also join the Company’s Board of Directors and fill the vacancy created by Udo Reider’s previously announced, planned departure.
Kenneth Lau has resigned from the board of directors, creating a second vacancy and preserves the Board’s independent status under NASDAQ compliance regulations as the Company proceeds with its recruitment of well-qualified new candidates.
