On February 4, a private plane crashed en route to a meeting in Ohio, killing Plymouth Foam President and co-owner Scott Roberts, Vice President of Development and Technical Services and co-owner Vance Roberts, and Vice President of Operations Mike Borzcik.

The company has reported that the business operations remain positive, due in large part to a comprehensive succession plan put in place by Vance and Scott Roberts. At the time of the crisis, the board of directors was able to follow a clearly defined contingency plan to maintain business continuity in the short and long term. Several board members assumed expanded roles during the transition. Chairman of the board Tom Testwuide and vice chairman and company founder Tec Roberts have announced the primary leadership components of the succession process.

David Bolland has been named president and chief operating officer and Jason Hassel has been named chief financial officer.
