Collins says that he has enjoyed his career with EBSCO and is proud of what the organization has accomplished during his tenure. “I will depart with much gratitude for the hard work and commitment of so many individuals, over so many years, that resulted in the company becoming what it is today. I am deeply thankful for the customers who have supported us over the years with their patronage. Having been in the role for 40 years, and with EBSCO well-positioned for the future, the timing is right for my retirement. I look forward to engaging in interests and activities I have not been able to pursue, and I will forever be grateful for the experiences that I have had while I was in this seat.”
