Anyone else thinks it is motivated by the proposed channel side redevelopment? My guess Vinik and his real estate partners have been approved by the TPA and now it is a matter hashing out the the details.

It was more the person who held that role decided quickly to pump the brakes and focus on family. Martha was/is a wonderful person.

I post this with zero hint of snark or condescension, Bobsled... and certainly not taking away any of Mrs. Fuller's accomplishments, but

You do know Mr. Canton's background, correct?

Certainly do, but his hire was long after the channelside purchase/ideas/development. Nobody really knows why Martha left, but employee meetings made it sound like she ran into some health issues. Sad, too, she really was one of the sweetest, most genuine people there. Heard shes back up in Washington state, hopefully shes well.

Doesn't hurt that they were able to lure him away during this whole process, too. Good stuff.
