With the addition of Lamothe, Conifer’s Board of Directors remains at nine members, as the appointment closely follows the departure of Jorge Morales earlier this month.
Petcoff added: “We would also like to thank Jorge Morales for his years of service on Conifer’s Board. We wish him the best in all his future endeavors.”
