Both Mary Beth Moore and Lauren McAndrews are seasoned veterans of the Company who have earned that right. They each have the skills and understanding of the nature of their new positions to do an excellent job. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity of working with an outstanding group of people over the years at ATI and look forward to exciting new challenges in the future.” website beth moore blog
