Walker, has resigned as Chairman and will step down from the Board of Directors effective immediately. The Board of Directors has appointed Board member Henning Boysen as the new Chairman and has informed the company's Nomination Committee of its decision.
Mr. Walker joined the Transcom board in 2004 and was appointed Chairman in 2006.
