"More Than It Seems."
Know that a role within a smaller organization requires you to wear several hats.

"That It Would End After 30 Years Of Continuous Employment."
Clear your new desk. If the information is significant it will surface somewhere down the road. Study reports from your predecessor. Identify problem areas and act on them. Meet with your salesmen in the field. Discover what frustrations they have. Communicate your growth in the position to your boss. Don't be afraid to ask for advice.
