Oakland, CA. June 7, 2013: CyArk reports that Tom Greaves has completed his tenure as executive director of CyArk and will be returning to the private sector. Greaves will continue to support CyArk as an ambassador and technology adviser. “CyArk is well on its way – we grew nearly 20% last year; we opened an office in Edinburgh and we launched an innovative data donation program. With the upcoming launch of the CyArk 500 challenge in October, its prospects have never been brighter. I‘ve had the opportunity to work with some of the best minds in the conservation field for the past eighteen months. I really appreciate the support of the CyArk teams in Oakland and Edinburgh.” says Greaves.
CyArk’s chairman and founder Ben Kacyra says "the CyArk board really appreciates Greaves’s dedication and hard work and we wish him well in his new venture." Kacyra will assume leadership of the organization.
