Moreover, his commitment to sustainability and innovation, which we view as core tenets of our growth strategy, has been unwavering,” said Mr. Kayser. “Leading Pretium has been a great privilege, and I am honored to have been part of its management team for the past eight years. As I contemplated retirement and evaluated options for a successor, Adam was the first person that came to mind. I am confident that under his leadership, Pretium is positioned to accelerate its growth and improve upon its already strong foundation in customer service, operations, sustainability and innovation. I look forward to collaborating with him to ensure a smooth transition for all our stakeholders and continuing to contribute to Pretium’s success as an advisor.”
