We are excited to work with this team to continue to grow Numotion and identify opportunities to better serve its customer base.”

“The AEA team,” Swinford added, “is extremely passionate about our purpose, which made them the perfect sponsor as we continue our mission of improving the lives of people with disabilities.”
