The perfect climbing team shares your psyche, pushes you to be your best and helps you laugh at all the silly little things that life throws at you. They make you more creative, more compassionate, more connected to the climb. Together you dream up cool adventures, embark on fascinating journeys and stand on distant summits. A great team makes climbing even more rewarding.
It is also true that all great teams have multiple leaders and pass the mantle of mentorship to whoever is equipped to take it in the moment. For us, at this moment, it means adding another valuable player to our team.
I’m proud to announce that Robert Cohen is the newest member of our growing leadership team. He is taking the reins as the CEO of Earth Treks & Planet Granite, and is the perfect teammate to guide us as we continue to create incredible places for communities to gather.
Robert brings more than 25 years of business and retail experience, having most recently served as Vice President of Global Retail for Patagonia. During his 14-plus years at Patagonia, Robert led the organization through a tremendous time of growth, helping to maintain the culture and create amazing customer service standards.
Robert is a thoughtful and inspiring leader whose passion for creating memorable experiences for both customers and employees is a top priority. Prior to Patagonia, Robert held positions at Gap, Old Navy and Nike.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME?
I am able to concentrate my energy on what I love most – helping grow leaders within our staff, building our company brand and probably climbing a few more mountains.
