FROM THE DESK OF CEO
June 26, 2015
I am humbled and honored to be chosen by the Eco Board of Directors to lead this Company forward. Having worked next to them for the past three months I have developed a profound respect for their collective wisdom and capabilities and together I have a very high level of confidence that we will position Eco for greatness. Further, having worked with the Eco Management Team as their acting President and COO, I have found them to be a group of dedicated, hardworking professionals, committed to being the best that they can be.
Together and with the support of our investors, we see something special in Eco. We see that there is a better way to protect building products from the harmful effects of mold, rot and insect infestation. And perhaps most importantly, from the devastating risk to life and property from fire. We have proven that it can be achieved through the use of cost effective, environmentally friendly methodologies.
There is a great deal of work to do and we must have a sense of urgency. We will move quickly to narrow our focus in order to execute with laser like precision. We will continue to liquidate idle assets and shed non-core activities. We will rationalize our product offering and channel strategies while carefully choosing our customers in order to delight those which we think are the best strategic fit.
Eco offers a tremendous challenge but also an incredible opportunity for those brave enough to take a different path. We believe the combination of our coating technology and proprietary chemistry will be nothing short of disruptive to the “treating” industry. There are those who are threatened by it, and for good reason. They will become our critics and we will defend ourselves with facts and data. And of course most importantly, performance.
Finally, in closing I want to pay tribute to Steve Conboy. He has been a tireless evangelist for change and missionary for the Eco brand. Whatever we have to work with today, is a result of his tenacity and sheer will.
