Statement on Sam McLafferty
CEO and Founder of Palisade

Sam McLafferty, CEO and founder of Palisade, passed away on December 4, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. We have lost a visionary and creative genius. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know Sam have lost a good friend and inspiring mentor. Sam leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will be felt forever.

Sam was also a great teacher, and leaves behind a strong company of creative thinkers and hard workers. Palisade will continue Sam’s legacy, and grow just as it has under Sam’s leadership. Randy Heffernan, Palisade’s Chief Operating Officer, has been appointed the new CEO. For more than 20 years, Randy has worked with not only Sam but with every department in the company. We are confident that this continuity of leadership, combined with a tradition of teamwork, leaves Palisade well-positioned for many more years of success.
