Denver, CO – Platte River Equity mourns the loss of our dear friend and colleague Bill Robb who passed away on Saturday, January 14, following a three year battle with cancer. Bill had been a Managing Director at Platte River Equity since its founding in 2006 and played an important role in the firm’s success. He brought his extensive background in marketing and private company management to our portfolio companies’ board rooms and our firm’s investment process. Ever a stickler for strategic planning and implementation, Bill made his mark on company management teams with empathy and a wonderful sense of humor.
Our hearts go out to Bill’s loving wife Louise, his children Kevin, Katy and Heather, their spouses and Bill and Louise’s six grandchildren. Memorial contributions may be made in Bill’s name to the National Parks Conservation Association (National Parks Conservation Association, Attn: Membership Department, 777 6th Street, NW, Suite 700, Washington, DC 20001, or visit www.npca.org).
