Our goal for the Programs team is to deliver high-quality products in a timely manner with internal efficiency. Looking ahead, I will continue to work toward this goal, as well as to identify opportunities for continuous improvements, and to contribute to Larta’s overall mission and objectives.”
Congratulations Judy! We are honored to have her assume this new responsibility.
