ole Chairman and CEO Robert Ott announced the company will not renew its contract with current President Michael McCarty, which terminates at the end of this year, and will eliminate the position.
Other changes to the company’s executive structure include the addition of a new position, Chief Operating Officer, and the recent addition of VP Finance & Administration.

“ole has experienced 50% growth in the last twelve months. As a result, we have a need to continuously strengthen our operational capacity,” says Ott. “ole has nearly a quarter of its staff dedicated to the creative function and remains highly committed to growth in this area. I wish outgoing President Michael McCarty every success in his endeavors and I thank him for his contributions to ole.”
