RCT Makes Executive Appointments

2.25.2004

Tucson, AZ – Feb 25, 2004

Research Corporation Technologies appointed two of its vice presidents to key management positions for 2004.

Shaun A. Kirkpatrick has been named president and chief operating officer, and Christopher P. Martin has been promoted to senior vice president and chief financial officer. Kirkpatrick also joins the RCT board of directors.

As COO and CFO, Kirkpatrick and Martin fill key roles in the current and future leadership of RCT as it positions itself for continued growth.

Gary M. Munsinger, Ph.D., RCT’s chairman and chief executive officer, said the promotions result from a deliberative process by the RCT board of directors to prepare for a transition of leadership when he is no longer chief executive.

“I am extremely pleased to have the opportunity to work with these outstanding young men to strengthen our organization and achieve important goals for our company,” Munsinger said.
