AJ Baggott has been appointed as President, which will see him lead the day-to-day operations of the company.
RJ Young announced the promotion of AJ Baggott to President of the company. Chip Crunk will continue to serve as CEO.
“I have full confidence in AJ to lead the organisation that has been a part of my family for decades,” said Chip Crunk, CEO. “I have watched RJ Young flourish under his direction as COO and look forward to seeing what he accomplishes in this new role.”
In his new role, Baggott will be responsible for casting the overall vision and direction of RJ Young and Crunk will continue as CEO to focus on strategic planning and acquisitions.
“Being named President of RJ Young is an honour and a privilege,” said AJ Baggott, President. “When Chip originally approached me with this opportunity, I was both humbled and excited to take on a new challenge within this incredible organisation. The confidence and support of the entire Crunk family means the world to me.”
Baggott joined RJ Young in 2016 and has been a member of the company’s leadership team since then. He served as the Chief Financial Officer from February 2016 to October 2018 and has served as Chief Operating Officer since October 2018.
“I would not be in this position today without the unwavering support of my family and the dedication of my RJ Young team buying into my vision and direction for the organisation,” said Baggott. “I look forward to leading and serving our 700 plus employees into the future.”
Baggott has played a part in RJ Young’s success through the past seven years, especially during the company’s shift from a document-centric company to a technology solutions and managed services organisation. He was responsible for the inception of the company’s “Modern Office” concept during COVID-19, bringing on thirty-plus new technology solutions to RJ Young’s offerings.
He has led the organisation from $102million (€965 million) in annual revenues to current revenue of $168million (€157 million) in less than five years through the negotiating and closing of eight mergers and acquisitions to expand RJ Young into eleven new markets.
