It has been a privilege to spend the past 30 plus years serving both. However, I’d now like to devote more time to my passions outside the workplace. I remain committed to working closely with the Board and my successor, Stacy DuToit, for a smooth transition.”

His decision to retire marks the end of a remarkable run that has seen impressive accomplishments in establishing Brady Martz as a trusted brand. Todd has delivered for our shareholders, team members, clients, and communities. On behalf of the entire Board, I want to thank him for his service and commitment to supporting a smooth transition.”
