Speaking of the new position, Mr. Fronk noted that, "My dual role as Chairman and CEO was not ideal from a corporate governance point of view. I look forward to sharing some of my duties with our new lead director, John Sabine."

The primary role of the Lead Director is to provide leadership to the Board in discharging its duties, responsibilities and obligations independently of management of the Corporation and the Executive Chair. The Lead Director facilitates the functioning of the Board independently of the Corporation's management and also works to maintain and enhance the quality of the Corporation's corporate governance practices.
