Said Keech, "I was impressed at Maetrics' double-digit growth over the last three years, but frankly how do you sustain that?  Then I saw their plan for U.S. and European performance over the next five years and I knew I wanted to be on the team to make this happen.  Maetrics' financial muscle, executive leadership, compliance agility, and global acumen make this a very exciting opportunity."
