My fellow directors join me in wishing him all the best as he transitions to a well-deserved retirement. The board has full confidence in Bruce and the other members of Mosaic’s talented Senior Leadership Team. Together they will build on Joc’s legacy of success on behalf of all Mosaic stakeholders.”
