A Tribute and Transition for IFSI CEO Jon Schwartz

I hope you are staying safe and sane as we enter the 6th month of this COVID crisis. I’m writing today to thank my brother Jon for his years of devoted service as CEO of IFSI. As some of you may know we are currently engaged in a search for a new CEO, and before that transition I want to be sure to share with the community all the important ways Jon impacted this organization.
