We are deeply saddened to confirm the passing of our Chairman and CEO Doug Shorenstein.
Doug had been ill for some time and fought a courageous battle with his illness. Through it all, he maintained a positive and hopeful outlook, and he remained steadfastly focused on serving his family, his colleagues and his community.
We will miss him dearly.
