Bearpaw has appointed Wayne Cottrell as its chief financial officer and chief operating officer.
Cottrell has held financial positions in the biomechanical and manufacturing sector. His 20 years of experience has given him responsibilities for managing operations, finance, human resources and administration functions.

“Sometimes it's tough to give up control and let someone else take charge, but in this case…it was an easy decision,” said Tom Romeo, Bearpaw's owner. “We are delighted to add someone with Wayne's talents
and experience to our executive team. It's great, he brings a fresh set of eyes to really look over things and develop our go-forward strategies.”
