Today marked a significant milestone for Challenger Technologies. With the retirement of the business partner, Carl Wesolek, in June, we now embark on a new chapter. Carl has transferred his ownership stake, and I have acquired a portion while the rest is divided among dedicated long-standing staff members who will lead the company into the future.

Exciting changes are on the horizon as my youngest son, Adam, along with my daughter-in-law, Christy, and Steve McComb, join the company as investors. Their involvement will bring about operational enhancements aimed at better serving our valued customers.

To streamline our operations and provide focused services, we are defining our three separate departments: Inside Plant (ISP), Outside Plant (OSP), and Engineering. Adam and Christy will lead the flagship division, Challenger Technologies, which will handle aerial and underground construction, engineering, and fiber optic work. Steve, who has excelled in ISP, will head the new division, Challenger 2, focusing on network infrastructure, audio-video systems, cameras, access controls, and related projects.

This divisional structure allows us to allocate staff members more efficiently, optimize scheduling, and cater to our customers' specific needs. Both divisions will collaborate on projects that require multiple resources and skills. Our dedicated employees, renowned for their knowledge, hard work, and commitment to excellence, remain instrumental in achieving our goal of being the top communications contractor in the industry.

As Carl departs, I assume the responsibility of overseeing the business we built together 21 years ago. I will guide and prepare the next generation to carry our legacy forward, as my own eventual departure draws nearer.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Carl for his years of camaraderie, hard work, and friendship in shaping Challenger Technologies into what it is today. From humble beginnings in my basement to where we stand now, I am immensely grateful to Adam, Christy, Steve, and all those who have contributed to our evolution over the past two decades. Together, we have come a long way, and the future holds great promise for Challenger Technologies.
