“Matthew Daggett’s track record of leadership in a variety of roles including experience as president, senior vice president of operations and business development manager are important qualifications for success in his new role with NMS,” said Helvi Sandvik, NANA Development Corporation president. “His proven success in the service industry will benefit both NMS and our clients.”
