It has been an honor to lead the dedicated, talented professionals at 24 Seven, and I look forward to partnering closely with Anthony in the months ahead while supporting the company's mission in my new role". Gudas will predominately focus on leading 24 Seven’s strategic direction while also championing the Company’s diversity and inclusion efforts over the coming years.
