“I have always taken so much pride in and been grateful to be a part of the Nacelle team,” said Henson. “At this particular moment in time, I couldn’t be prouder for the opportunity to step up and support the company from my new position.”
“For almost eight years, Cisco has been the rock that we could unfailing depend on no matter how many of my ideas, some good, many bad, resulted in our output doubling almost every year” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of The Nacelle Company. “From over a hundred Sunday 3 a.m. airport rendezvous after a shoot to him overseeing last month’s flawless evacuation of our headquarters’ staff and equipment, he has never once let the company down.”
