PORTLAND, ME--(Marketwire - March 07, 2012) - EnviroLogix President and CEO Bruce S. Ferguson today announced his decision to retire in pursuit of "the next chapter of my life." In August 2010, EnviroLogix was purchased by Ensign-Bickford Industries, Inc. At that time, Bruce agreed to continue as President and CEO, to guarantee the business he had built would continue to grow and develop. To ensure a smooth transition at this time, Bruce has agreed to remain until mid-August, allowing EBI to install new leadership without disruption to the business. The search for his successor will begin immediately, looking at both internal and external candidates.
"We are happy for Bruce and thankful for his leadership in bringing EnviroLogix to the position of world leader in our industry," says Dean T. Layton, Vice President of Marketing & Sales. "We will all miss him on both a personal and professional level."
As an engaged industry leader and successful entrepreneur, Bruce leaves his valued customers and employees with a 42-year legacy of successes and platforms ripe with innovative technologies; new, state-of-the-art facilities; and outstanding future opportunities and developments. Bruce's unwavering commitment to the highest standards of product quality and customer service will be carried on by his highly dedicated staff.
"Because of his exceptional leadership, EnviroLogix has a great base upon which to build our future," Layton added.
