We are extremely saddened by the loss of Charles Whitmore Riske, III this past Sunday.
His passion to better the lives of those around him will continue to inspire us all. Whit was a man of deep integrity, conviction, and optimism. From the moment he founded Catalyst, he rallied those within our company to make an impact that would go well beyond the conventional definition of success — Specifically, he sought to make the world a more sustainable place, and to help those less fortunate in the process.
Of all the people in his life, he cherished most his wife Jill and his closely-knit family. Our condolences go out to them and all those who were touched by his remarkable spirit.
We look forward to carrying on his legacy.
