Towne Park is pleased to announce the appointment of Beverly Valltos to a newly created position of Vice President of Administration and Compliance. With our recent success of centralizing the operations support, it has become clear that this important function will continue to grow in size and importance in the coming years. In this new structure, we have created two new executive positions, the Executive Vice President of Administration, held by Rick Sorrells, and the Vice President of Administration and Compliance. With this approach, we believe that this group will be better aligned with the operations group in identifying and implementing critical procedures, processes and initiatives.
