We are excited to announce the promotion of Tim Zacharias to President of Cougar USA! Tim has been with the company since 2007, having worked in various roles, most recently as Chief Operating Officer since 2017.
Mike Zacharias has served as President since co-founding the company in 2003 and will continue to work with Cougar in sales and as Chairman of the Board. Scott Magee, co-founder, will continue his role as Vice President and as a member of the Board of Advisors.
The Leadership Team has expanded to include three new members. Randy Milian and Steve Hale both join as Operations Managers of Cougar Sales and Cougar Systems, respectively. Both are exemplary members of the Cougar Family, and we are excited to see the new insight and perspective they bring to the Leadership Team!
Earlier this year, our CFO Deanna Parmenter retired. She joined the company in 2015 and was vital in Cougar USA “growing up” in the last few years. Instead of hiring a direct replacement, Cougar USA has entered into a shared services agreement with STH, Inc, a partner rep firm out of Maryland. STH is providing fractional CFO, HR, and IT support to Cougar USA. JD Slough, CFO of STH, also joins the Cougar USA Leadership Team in the fractional CFO capacity. Our partnership with STH, JD, and his team is already very strong and mutually beneficial.
We believe the new leadership structure will allow us to better serve our employees, customers, partners and take Cougar USA to the next level!
