John Dowd, President of Sundance Vacations said, “During his twelve years as our CFO, Marvin has already been handling many of the responsibilities of a Chief Operating Officer, which makes him uniquely qualified for his new position.  Marvin has the vision and leadership skills necessary to help us successfully grow the business.” 

Tina Dowd, Co-Founder of Sundance said, “Formalizing Marvin’s position as COO enabled us to hire a CFO.  Marvin can now focus more of his time on important, big-picture projects.  We are  excited to welcome our new Chief
Financial Officer, Jack Lenahan and Manager of Human Resources, Lisa Woodruff to the Sundance team, and we
look forward to their contributions to the company.”
