“It is an amazing adventure every day with our team that never sleeps,” says Kautz. “Scott, seeing everyone pull together to build this rocket ship and having your trust from the start to help set its course has been a dream come true.

Thank you for the opportunity and especially this recognition; it’s truly an honor.”
