To the VEX Community:
This is one of the hardest forum posts that I’ve had to write over the past nine years. Yes, even harder than the Best of One and V5 posts. I wanted to personally let you all know that I have officially resigned from my position as President of VEX Robotics.
Sometimes, life presents you with new challenges that you simply cannot pass up. I will be pursuing a wonderful opportunity running a startup education company. This is one of very, very few endeavors I would have ever considered leaving VEX to pursue.
My last day as President will be Friday, September 7th, as I personally wanted to see the shipment of the first V5 systems cross the finish line with my team.
Truth be told, you (and VEX as a whole) are in good hands. We would not be standing where we are today without the very talented and dedicated group of employees I am proud to call my peers.
While it saddens me to close out this chapter of my life, I am excited for what is to come. I feel lucky to have played an instrumental role in shaping the lives of many of you over the years through lessons that we’ve all learned together. My time here at VEX Robotics has been amazing, and while I will no longer be running VEX, I will remain a part of the community as best I can as a coach and an EP. I hope to keep in contact with many of you.
Thanks for the great memories,
