Dive RAID International has released a joint statement with Paul Vincent Toomer announcing that PVT has stepped down from the agency's management team.
In the joint statement released today, Dive RAID International and Paul Toomer disclosed that Paul has resigned his position as V-P Product Development for the agency.
Citing personal reasons, Paul has also relinquished his general management duties with the company. He will, however, continue as a highly respected professional for RAID – as an ITT/Examiner – instructing at most levels of the RAID curriculum.
“Paul has served on the RAID board of directors since Dive RAID International purchased the company in January 2022, and before that in various roles under previous ownership,” explained Sabatino Bianco, CEO of RAID's management team.
“During his time with us, especially in the past 18 months, he made many contributions to our success and growth, drawing on a wealth of experience gained over a long and successful career in the dive industry.
“On behalf of the board of directors, the management team, and our professional partners worldwide, I thank Paul sincerely for his dedication to the agency and wish him and his family all the best in the future.”
