Early in our company’s development, we were fortunate to have a breadth of strategic and financial expertise at our disposal through our advisory board. Now that FireFly is entering larger markets, we have begun the expansion of our Board of Directors. In addition to company co-founders Steve Aposhian, Andrew Limpert, and Matt Aposhian, who currently serve on the board, our first independent member is Liz Hocker.
