“I am thankful to be taking the reins following Dana David’s accomplished tenure,” said Alexander. “I continue to be inspired by the E&S Ring story, the strong character of the Ring family, as well as the tradition of service and quality established by Ellis and Selden Ring over 50 years ago. Together, we will continue to honor their heritage through the unwavering dedication of our employees, and by truly focusing on our residents, serving the needs of our clients and embracing E&S Ring's core values: initiative, integrity, collaboration, humor, flexibility and accountability.”
