The perfect 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. Together you dream up cool adventures, embark on fascinating journeys and stand on distant summits. A great team makes the climb even more rewarding.

With that, we are very proud to announce our newest addition to the Planet Granite and Earth Treks family, Robert Cohen! Robert is joining as our new CEO and will be the perfect teammate to guide us as we continue to create incredible places for our 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 an 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. He loves spending time traveling and exploring the outdoors, and is an avid hiker, skier and cyclist. Robert will be visiting all the Planet Granite and Earth Treks locations over the next few months to get to know our communities so be sure to say hi when you see him!

Our current CEO, Renee DeAngelis, will continue as our Earth Treks and Planet Granite COO. Micky Lloyd, Planet Granite’s founder, will continue in his pursuit to find new locations for our gyms to open!
