Tony Baxter Retiring Tomorrow, 2/1/13

News is spreading like wildfire that Tony Baxter is retiring effective tomorrow. Officially the company is saying he is "stepping away from full time employment but staying on as a consultant for various projects"

A sad loss no doubt, speculation is WDI is trying to get his salary off the books.
