There are times in every business’ life cycle that require a look at the organization’s product and service offerings and how it is structured. Many times, these reviews result in having to make some difficult decisions. Over the past few months, AQHA has been doing the same, and this week announced the first steps in a reorganization to address current business and financial needs, as well as to begin preparing for the retirement of AQHA Executive Vice President Don Treadway Jr.
Last week, the AQHA Executive Committee named Trent Taylor to the position of acting chief operating officer and treasurer. In that position, Taylor will take a more active role in the day-to-day management of AQHA as Treadway focuses on the Association’s strategic plan, business development, Foundation gifts and securing some expiring AQHA corporate partnership agreements.
