In restructuring Reveille and establishing Shine Americas, he has created an incredible team, equipped to now build on the successes to date and committed to future growth. He will be missed, but I respect his request to take time off and wish him the very best in doing so. ”
Calemzuk added: “After a fast-paced and fulfilling decade and a half in executive management roles across business lines and continents, I am ready to start a new chapter in my life after traveling this summer with my family.”
