Stephen Lawe Transitions to Principal Role

After 35 years at RSG, and 12 years as CEO, Stephen Lawe has transitioned away from company leadership to a Principal role where he will focus on thought leadership, work with clients to bring about transformative change, and continue to mentor the next generation of leaders.

“For the past 12 years, Stephen has led RSG through several periods of great change in our industry,” said Thomas Adler, RSG’s co-founder and current President Emeritus. “We appreciate Stephen’s contributions to RSG’s many successes during his tenure as CEO and are glad that he will continue to help us shape a successful future for RSG and guide us in his role as Principal.”

Stephen Lawe reflected positively on his time as CEO: “I'm forever grateful to have had the opportunity to lend my decades of experience to helping RSG navigate some of the most innovative and personally rewarding years in our nearly 38-year history,” said Stephen Lawe. “I am proud of the work we have accomplished together in helping to advance the state-of-the-practice for our clients, and I couldn't be more excited to continue contributing to RSG's work in my new role as Principal.”

RSG’s Board of Directors appointed Tim Young as Interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO) during their May 2024 meeting. Tim Young will continue to serve as RSG's Chief Technology Officer during his appointment as Interim CEO while RSG's Board of Directors initiates a comprehensive search to select RSG's next CEO.

“I’m excited to help lead RSG toward this next chapter as we continue to grow and innovate,” said Tim Young. “RSG’s shared values and goals will continue to guide us, and I look forward to helping us continue to deliver unmatched research and analytics to our clients.”
