Today I’m announcing that I’m stepping down as President of Rooster Teeth effective April 26th. Working at Rooster Teeth has been one of the highlights of my career. This company is so special and I am forever indebted to Matt and Burnie for giving me this opportunity.
When I became involved with Rooster Teeth the company was about 60 people; today it’s many multiples of that size. I am so proud of what we have built together. I wanted to thank the entire team from creative to support staff for making my time at Rooster Teeth such a fulfilling experience. You are all so talented and work so hard. You all truly inspire me and have become a family to me.
I also want to thank each and every one of you in the community. This community is something special and I feel so lucky to have been welcomed into it and supported by you all. You make Rooster Teeth stand out and provide the fuel that propels Rooster Teeth forward. You are all so passionate, creative and good. Don’t take this for granted; don’t take each other for granted.
Between Fullscreen and Rooster Teeth I’ve been running hard for almost 8 years. It’s now time for me to step back to spend some time with my other family. When I realized that my frequent flier balance was rivaling that of Burnie, Gav and Geoff it became clear that I needed some time to chill. As my wife always reminds me, these are precious years with our kids.
Finally, I wanted to thank Matt, Burnie, Geoff, Gus, Yvonne, George Strompolos, Jesse Jacobs and Peter Chernin, Andy Forssell & Tom Pickett. You guys are the best and have given me more than you know.
Thank you all for your patience with this transition. I know you all will stay focused on your goals and the opportunities that are opening up for Rooster Teeth. In the interim while we look for a replacement for my role, my direct reports will report to Matt.
I know it’s a cliche way to end this post but, Keep Moving Forward. There is so much goodness ahead.
