He has been vital to the company’s growth already, and I know we’ll continue to see greatness in his new role.” Bob Almond will remain CEO of NEST of Florida that supports the NEST Method™ with procurement and administrative services.
Robert Almond joined NEST in 2002 working in various roles and departments, including his most recent position as COO.
