St. Charles, IL (PRWEB) August 30, 2007
Aquascape is proud to name T.D. Decker as its new President. Founder and CEO Greg Wittstock will continue to focus on his passion for growing the water garden industry.
"I am going to continue to focus on casting the vision, sharing my passion for water gardens, developing relationship throughout the industry, and evolving our unique culture," Wittstock said. "T.D. will ensure we have a solid foundation to continue to grow profitably."
Decker earned a B.S. in engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point where he was a quarterback on the Army football team and received an MBA from Duke University where he was president of his class. Decker previously was president of two manufacturing companies, then oversaw a portfolio of service companies and recently was president of a $3 billion hedge fund.
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead Aquascape from 'Good to Great.' Having led process, product, service, and financial services companies, I'm now excited to learn how to run a niche distribution company," Decker said.
"T.D. Decker has a 25-year track record as an organization builder, change agent, and coach," Wittstock said.
