From Marc Beller,
“What a great day to announce the new direction of Blue Ocean Solids LLC! Kathleen Collier will become an owner in Blue Ocean and will continue as Director of Sales and Marketing. Kathleen is committed to making a difference on this planet and has the dedication to help grow our business with integrity, hard-work, and passion. This is not about gender equality; it is about people getting what they deserve. As a dad of two daughters, I cannot think of a better way to show them that Blue Ocean will succeed with two incredibly competent individuals that happen to be women.”
