Reading time: 2 minutes

RPE Origin recently announced the appointment of Ryan Phelan as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This transition marks the next phase of growth and evolution for the agency, which was formed in 2020 when Ryan Phelan and John Caldwell merged their respective email agencies.

Ryan Phelan, a veteran in the email industry with a wealth of experience, will take the reins as CEO. His predecessor, industry legend John Caldwell, will transition to the role of Executive Chairman. The camaraderie and shared work experience between the two founders have laid the foundation for a seamless leadership transition.

Ryan expressed his admiration for John’s contributions: “John is one of the most brilliant people I know. It has been my pleasure to work with him, benefit from his unique perspective, and continue to draw on his vision to build a company where people enjoy work, respect their colleagues, and serve great clients.”

Ryan also highlighted the talented team members who contribute to the agency’s success: “I am backed by the smartest, kindest, and most dedicated people in our industry. They do an exemplary job for me, our team, and our clients.”

As Executive Chairman, John Caldwell will allocate more time to Alan’s Artisan Soaps, a business he founded with his son to promote natural soaps and provide employment opportunities to individuals with special needs. John expressed confidence in RPE Origin’s future, stating, “Ryan’s appointment formalizes the process we began when we merged our agencies together, and I am excited to see the next step in the evolution of RPE Origin and our shared goal to serve the email marketing needs of our enterprise clients.”

We wish Ryan Phelan, an honorary lifetime emailexpert Ambassador every success in his new role.
