"We will miss Brad! Brad has decided to return to the United States for family reasons after many years abroad and to pursue his long-standing interest in education and policy. We are pleased that the world of public service will benefit from Brad's qualities.
In addition to being a significant shareholder in one of the two founding entities of Atlas Mara, Brad led, alongside Arina and myself, the execution of our acquisitions and fundraising activities, served as Acting Chief Financial Officer, coordinated our investor relations activities and has served on the Boards of BRD Commercial and ABC Holdings.
The Board and I are greatly appreciative of his many contributions to the group during its formative period. We will miss Brad's dedication, professionalism, and enthusiasm for our mission. He goes with our best wishes and we know he will bring the characteristics that he brought to Atlas Mara to his future endeavors outside the world of finance."
