Of Buffo’s move, Lee Duncan said: “I’ve always described Andrea as my right hand, and maybe also my left hand. She has a keen eye for detail, and I’ve always appreciated her ability to organize and turn all the plates around to us on multiple fronts This promotion will help us continue to keep all tracks aligned as the Alliance Group accelerates toward our goal of $100 million of combined production by 2030.”
