He is an excellent fit and ideally suited to lead DDi’s finance team as we move forward with our initiatives to expand our business and improve operational efficiencies.”

As CFO, he made significant contributions, and we were fortunate to have him at DDi during the past decade. I am pleased that Joe will be working with the Company as an advisor for the next several months to ensure a smooth transition.”
