"The leader of the Colorado Institute for Drug, Device and Diagnostic Development is stepping down at the end of 2014.
After helping to launch the life science-focused nonprofit in 2009, Kevin Smith, CEO of CID4, is retiring from his post as a part of a planned retirement.
'I’ve invested about seven years of my life into this project and I’m really proud of where we are,' Smith said. 'I’m indebted to the all of the people involved.'
Smith cited wanting to spend more time with his family and the end of the organization’s first five-year plan as the central reasons for his resignation."
