As COO, Finn, who has been with Pride since 1998, will direct the development of Pride Mobility to ensure future growth through the attainment of short-term and long-term financial and operational goals. Finn will also oversee various company departments, including global manufacturing, quality, research and development, information technology, ecommerce, operational efficiency, business management, accounts receivable and payable, logistics, purchasing, supply chain management, and distribution.

As CTO, Mr. Cummins — who comes to Pride after having worked for such notable companies as Lockheed Martin, ExxonMobil, Coco-Cola Company, Enron, Dell and Delphi Consulting Services — will drive innovation, technology, efficiency, and advancement throughout the company. Mr. Cummins will also work to ensure the technology is easy to operate and maintain, is cost-efficient and “unbreakable,” and maximize ecommerce tools for Pride and its customers.
