Passing of the torch.
It is my distinct honor, and with a great deal of excitement, that I announce the appointment of my successor as CEO of Raoust+Partners, Charles S. Parr, AKA Charlie.
Charlie has assumed the role of Chief Executive Officer as of April 1, 2021. I will remain as President and continue to be integrally involved with this company I am so proud of, as Chief Brand Strategist.
This announcement has been a long time coming, and I believe that as you know the Charlie we know, you will understand why this is a brilliant decision earned by a most deserving teammate.
Charlie actually began his career with R+P in 2000 as a design intern in his Senior year at Old Dominion University. In the 20+ years since, Charlie has constantly amazed us by his talents, the initiative he takes to learn and master new skill sets, his range of said skill sets, and just the exuberance and curiosity he brings that could not be more relevant or necessary to R+P’s success in our next 25 years.
Charlie is really looking forward to sharing his own ideas about what that future looks like for the Raoust team. In his own words, he describes here what NextGen means for our firm:
Raoust+Partners is in good hands, indeed.
President - Raoust+Partners
