Summer Infant, Inc., announced that board member Richard Wenz died in late June after a brief, unexpected illness. Wenz, age 66, had been a member of Summer Infant’s board since 2007 and, most recently, was the company’s lead independent director.
“It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Dick Wenz,” said Dan Almagor, chairman of Summer Infant’s board of directors. “Dick was a kind and consummate professional as well as long-time believer in the potential of Summer Infant, and he played a key role in driving the many changes that have taken place to position the company for stronger growth. His untimely passing is a loss for Summer Infant, and our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
