It's not every CEO who gets the company to come to him. New IMRE Corp. CEO Jay Kranzler has been given a pretty free hand at the Seattle company, including relocating it to San Diego.

Given the downsizing he's already done, relocating isn't hard. The company has been reduced from 39 employees to 18. Most of those remaining are in manufacturing and will stay at the company's plant in Seattle. A core of senior management, including Kranzler and new President and COO Debby Jo Blank, will build a new management team in San Diego.
