Amelex President and Co-owner Announces Retirement

On February 12, 2024, Amelex President and Co-owner, Dawn Rich, announced her retirement after 36 years with the company.  She expressed how difficult her decision was, and how much she cares about her employees and the support they provide to Amelex’s customers.  Ms. Rich’s retirement was made official during a meeting of the Board of Directors on February 24,2024, in which she officially tendered her resignation as Amelex President.  However, as a company owner, Ms. Rich will continue to serve on the Board of Directors.  As a result of Ms. Rich’s retirement, Kimberly Oliver, Amelex CEO and Co-owner, will become President and CEO.  Ms. Jacquline Lawrence, a current Director in the company, will be promoted to Vice President of Operations.  Together, Ms. Oliver and Ms. Lawrence will continue to lead Amelex into the future.  Ms. Lawrence has been with Amelex for over 25 years, has served in many senior leadership roles, and has been involved in every aspect of company business, from customer support to corporate operations.  In her new role, Ms. Lawrence will assume the majority of Ms. Rich’s day-to-day operational duties and responsibilities.  When making the announcement regarding the promotion of Ms. Lawrence, Ms. Oliver stated, “She knows our business inside and out, has proven to be a strong leader, and has great ideas for our future.  Both Dawn and I are confident that there is no one more ready or better suited for this position than Jackie.”  While there is no doubt that Ms. Rich’s presence within Amelex’s daily operations will be sorely missed, she feels strongly that she is leaving the company in very capable hands to do great things in the future.
