Ron, recently retired founder and former President, with assistance from his nephew Ryan Licari who has played an instrumental role in Classics journey from the very onset of our partnership, will continue to collaborate to strategize and implement the transition to Classic Fire+ Safety, with Ryan taking a lead role in the forthcoming organization.
