Paul Craig Stepping Down From Rudy Project North America

Denver, CO – Rudy Project North America, distributor of world-renowned endurance sports eyewear, helmets, prescriptions and gear since 1985, announced that Paul Craig, Co-Founder and President, will be leaving the company today to spend more time with his family and pursue several philanthropic interests.

Craig helped launch Rudy Project North America in 1998, spearheading the Company’s Denver office.  Since then Rudy Project has grown into a powerhouse in the high-end sports market sponsoring tens of thousands of athletes, teams and organizations.  Recently Rudy Project won its eighth consecutive helmet count in Kona at the Ironman World Championships.

“All good things come to an end, “said Paul Craig, and I look forward to hanging out with my wife and three young kids, scuba diving my bucket list and promoting awareness of several causes I am passionate about. Launching Rudy in the US, Canada and Caribbean and seeing it grow over two decades into the premiere brand has been about as rewarding as it comes.  I want to thank everyone who was integral to Rudy’s amazing success along the way and know that the team in place now is ready to take Rudy to the next level.”

“We thank Paul for all his time and energy over the years. Everyone at Rudy wishes him well, said Brad Shapiro, Co-Founder and Principal of Rudy Project North America.
