"He is a humble, kind, and loving family man of deep Catholic faith who has an exceptional array of work backgrounds and relevant experiences, to include, most recently, within the Arlington Diocese," said Crittenberger. "His work is marked by integrity, high quality and delivery, and exceptional customer service, and I look forward to all that he will bring to our leadership team."
