Third Generation Rawlins Joins R&B Wire Products

Santa Ana, California --R&B Wire Products

CEO Rick Rawlins is pleased to announce the third generation Rawlins as the newest member of the team. The addition of Grant Rawlins comes exactly 50 years after his grandfather, Rea Rawlins, purchased the company, and 42 years after his father, Rick, joined.

Grant graduated in April from Pepperdine University with his Bachelor’s degree in Integrated Marketing Communication. He stated that he looks forward to bringing his team-focused mentality to the company which was taught to him by his water polo coaches (6x Olympian Terry Schroeder and current Olympic goalie Merrill Moses) during his collegiate career. Grant stated, “I’m looking forward to contributing to the company’s success while continuing the legacy that my grandfather started 50 years ago.”

Frank Rowe, VP, Sales & Marketing expressed, “This is a great legacy at R&B for Grant to be involved in with such a rich family history and being able to take his education and put it into use immediately. His athletic training is a testament to his drive and focus which is a huge plus for our team.”

Rick Rawlins stated, “I’m excited to see Grant pairing his Pepperdine marketing education with R&B’s global strategy in order to secure the company’s growing position as the industry leader.”
