Plymouth Foam Implements Succession Plan in Wake of Recent Tragedy

On Feb. 4, 2005, a private plane crashed en route to a meeting in Ohio, killing Plymouth Foam President and co-owner Scott Roberts, Vice President of Development & Technical Services and co-owner Vance Roberts, and Vice President of Operations Mike Borczik. The losses have been devastating to the families, company employees and surrounding communities, and the healing process has only just begun.


The future remains bright, however, for Plymouth Foam due in large part to a comprehensive succession plan put in place by Vance and Scott Roberts. At the time of the crisis the board of directors was able to follow a clearly defined contingency plan to maintain business continuity in the short and long term. Several board members assumed expanded roles during the transition, and approximately one month after the tragedy, the company is able to announce the primary leadership components of the succession process.



David Bolland has been named president and chief operating officer. Bolland has been at Plymouth Foam for two years, most recently serving as the vice president of Sales & Marketing.


Jason Hassel has been named chief financial officer. Hassel has been at Plymouth Foam for 10 years most recently serving as the director of Administrative Services.
