“Ewan will provide an overarching role, bringing his successful customer-focused business strategies from his previous position to all of Whitlock nationwide,” explains Doug. “He will be a customer advocate with the other line of business leaders at Whitlock, and will also bring greater focus on employees and culture building.”
