FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sensing the possibilities, Ken’s son, Lou Rohl, quickly jumped onboard. Starting at the bottom, the younger Rohl contributed to every aspect of the small business, from accounting to shipping. Lou was quickly sent overseas to Europe for a few years to form a closer relationship with the firm’s suppliers. Eventually, he returned to California where he established a San Francisco office and led ROHL’s sales efforts in the West. Today, Lou is Chief Operating Officer based at the Irvine, CA headquarters.
Mark Rohl began his career in hospitality, but then followed a similar path. Like his brother, he started working for his father in the early days. The key metro markets in the Northeast were ripe with opportunity for national expansion and after countless cross-country flights, Mark created a permanent Eastern presence by opening an office in New York. Today, Mark is President of the Eastern Division.
When Ken’s youngest son, Greg, graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara, the firm was already enjoying a level of success. New opportunities enticed Greg into the marketing department where he also accepted the added responsibility of product development–bringing innovative concepts to market. Today, Greg is president of the Western Division and is based in San Francisco.
“Lou, Mark, and Greg each bring a unique competency to the company,” Ken Rohl proudly notes. “They have established reputations on their own; each is a leader in his own right.”
The three brothers have helped to contribute to their father’s successful entrepreneurial venture, the venture that is now celebrating over 20 years as a leading provider of distinctive products for the kitchen and bath.
