With Buck’s arrival, James has now stepped down from his position, effective immediately. He will, however, remain with the company, which has appointed him to the role of Chairman of the Board.

Mission’s Ready new President and CEO, Buck Marshall, brings many years of experience in high-level management. This includes 16 years within the commercial banking industry, where he worked with US Small Business Administration lending groups. 

Throughout his career, Buck has helped hundreds of small businesses obtain the capital they need to grow their enterprises. Mission Ready’s former Interim CEO, and new Chairman, James Marks, commented on the appointment of the company’s new leader.

“The Mission Ready team is very excited to welcome Buck Marshall aboard as President and CEO.

“Buck brings far more to Mission Ready than the sum of his many professional talents and successes; he has the character and values of a thoughtful, energetic servant-leader.

“We won when we found Buck, and he agreed to lead us forward,” he said.

Mission Ready Solutions (MRS) is down 2.33 per cent and is trading for C$0.21 per share at 10:32am EDT.
