Seliga succeeds Tobey Rumack who retired earlier this year.

A more than 25-year financial veteran with a strong background in managing business growth, Seliga has a track record of implementing financial, operational and technological changes that have resulted in increased profits, improved efficiencies and enhanced management control for the companies he has served. A certified public accountant, Seliga holds a master’s degree in business administration from Cleveland State University and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bowling Green State University.
