We are excited to have Roger step into Wendy’s former role. His long history with the office, unique experience and leadership make him a natural choice for office managing shareholder.”
“As the new office managing shareholder of the Las Vegas office, I look forward to building on what the office has achieved during Wendy’s tenure,” added Grandgenett. “I salute her for all she has done, and feel privileged to step into a leadership role that will enable me to serve both Littler’s clients across the U.S. as well as those throughout Las Vegas and the surrounding regions.”
