â€œStephenie and I have worked closely to develop strategies that allowed for our great success at AVI and now AVI-SPL,â€? said Marty Schaffel, executive chairman, AVI-SPL. â€œWe would never have accomplished a fraction of what we have done without Stephenieâ€™s skills,â€? Schaffel added. â€œWhile Stephenie will remain active with this company in the years ahead, her daily presence will be sorely missed. I will personally miss her great work ethic, passion for greatness and perfection, and dedication for the success of all AVI-SPL employees and customers.â€?
