“My last day at Stone will be June 30th.

I had this new opportunity drop in my lap. These guys approached me. They are industry vets; they’ve got 20-30 years experience. They wanted me to partner with them in this new operation. Like I told Pat [COO], this opportunity may never come again. It’s a bucket list thing. It was something that I thought that if I didn’t give it a shot, I’d regret it for the rest of my life.”
