Dr. Anne Lindblad, president and chief executive officer, said, “Jon has been a key player in Emmes’ growth and success. His technical skills, high levels of integrity and honesty, and vision, have earned the trust and respect from all those with whom he works. We are thrilled to have him as our new chief financial officer. I am extremely confident Emmes will be in excellent hands under Jon’s leadership.”
She added, “I want to thank Brian Hochheimer for his outstanding service to me and the company. He was instrumental in the success of our international expansion; our revenue and profit growth; and our employee expansion and engagement. These successes, combined with his community and nonprofit activism, earned Brian the Washington Business Journal’s C-Suite Awards recognition last year.”
