Nance explained in the press release that he is resigning to spend more time with his family in Arkansas and to pursue personal business interests. “I take great pride in the accomplishments of the Raven team. We created a best-in-class technology foundation and partnered with the best coating contractors in the business. The team can build on these foundations to take RLS to the next level.
