Owen – who joined the company as chief financial officer (CFO) in 2016 – previously served as vice president for national search firm EFL Associates and as CFO for OrTran, a supply-chain management company. He succeeds Keith Plumb, who announced in February that he was stepping down.

Commenting on his appointment, Owen said, “I’m honored by this opportunity. I am indebted to the board and its confidence, and greatly appreciate the support of a talented executive team.
