He earned his bachelor’s degree from Park University in Arizona and his MBA from Arizona State University.

“I am very proud to have been selected to oversee the management of this company and to continue to work with our talented team. I will strive to find ways to improve our business position and to help our customers improve their competitive position,” Lewis said.

Steve Badinghaus will continue as director of administration and finances. Jeff Gaskins, recently hired as the director of operations, replaces the newly retired Mark Pollard.
