On Sherry Decker Stepping Down as NJTI, LLC Co-Chair

It’s difficult for me to put into words my feelings about Sherry’s departure. Sherry and I have been discussing succession planning for the initiative for some time; however the initial plan didn’t include a departure for either of us this year (and certainly not prior to the end of the year). Sherry’s decision was her own (trust me, I tried to talk her out of it), and I completely understand why she chose to leave at this time. I congratulate Sherry on her promotion, I know she’ll do well in her new assignment, and I know she’ll be an asset to the organization, both in the work she’s been asked to do and in whatever direction her new position takes her in the months and years to come.
