Austin, TX— CCRcorp wishes to recognize Broc Romanek, a veteran editor of TheCorporateCounsel.net, CompensationStandards.com, and DealLawyers.com, who made the decision to depart from the company at the end of December 2019. The company has announced key leadership appointments in order to ensure a smooth and successful transition.
The company has appointed Liz Dunshee as Managing Editor to succeed Romanek. CCRcorp will also benefit from active involvement by John Jenkins, Dave Lynn, and Alan Dye, who are assuming enhanced roles as Senior Editors, and from the continued contributions of its other expert Editors, including Mark Borges, Mike Melbinger and Lynn Jokela.
“We are so appreciative of Broc and all he has built at CCRcorp over his 17-year tenure,” said CCRcorp CEO, Mel Yarbrough. “We also value the hard work he has done over the past several years to hire people with the right experience and to successfully transition his duties to Liz, John, and our other expert Editors. While we are saddened to lose Broc’s daily contributions, he has laid the framework for our continued focus on the high-quality, practical guidance our members expect. We are excited about CCRcorp’s future as our entire team builds on Broc’s efforts.”
During his tenure, Romanek built and expanded many of CCRcorp’s core resources, authored many instrumental treatises, handbooks, checklists, and paperbacks, and fostered a community that has been thriving under his leadership – all of which the company’s well-respected experts will continue to cultivate. CCRcorp wants to ensure all members that it will continue its 45-year commitment to providing publications and other resources “direct from the experts” – practical and high-quality advice that everyone in the community can use.
“I want to thank Jesse Brill [CCRcorp’s Founder] for believing in me,” Romanek said. “Dave Lynn and Alan Dye have been invaluable…Knowing that I am leaving Liz [Dunshee] and John [Jenkins] has been the hardest part of this difficult decision. They say good managers hire people that are smarter than they are. I certainly got that right. Working with them in the past few years has been truly special. You are in good hands.”
