“Tricia has significantly expanded our capabilities as in-house counsel, all the while embodying our core values of putting our people and customers first. This promotion reflects a role that she has embraced for a while, helping identify corporate vulnerability and providing options and strategies for reducing or eliminating that risk,” commented Andrew Stocking, PBE’s President and COO. “Tricia is another example of our focus on expanding our ability to grow by adding strong leaders to our team who are technical masters and truly care about the success of our Associates and the dignity of our customers.” This position follows other recent additions to the Company’s Senior Leadership Team to strengthen manufacturing operations and commitment to innovation.
