Mickos told Business Insider that “You can say the relationship has been building over a number of years, “In 2018, we decided it’s time to expand the board….I think there were many things that were a good fit and we sort of tried it out over a number of months to make sure there was a good fit, good chemistry, good alignment of strategy, good alignment of what we’re trying to do.”
