Christopher Parker, Chairman of the Board of Managers, commented, "On behalf of the Board of Managers and the entire management team, I would like to express our gratitude to Al not only for his leadership as President and CEO, but also for the hard work and dedication that he has given to Sun World. We wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement." Parker continued, "Sun World's Board and management team are confident that after an extensive search, David Dever is the right person to be our next CEO and we look forward to his contributions"

"I am excited to join the Sun World family" stated Dever. "Sun World's international reputation for quality products backed by a well-qualified and innovative team provides a great foundation from which to build. I look forward to working with such a talented and dedicated group of people."
