Mr. Greene was then promoted to President in May 2022 and will now assume the role of CEO upon Monty’s retirement.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and Monty Irvin, PE, PTOE, this promotion will strengthen and support RKA’s strategic plan to expand the firm and its services across NC, SC, and VA. Monty Irvin is confident about the trajectory of RKA under Stephen’s leadership and Mr. Greene is excited about this new chapter in his career.

This is what Monty had to say about the promotion:

“I became the second President & CEO of RKA, and now at the beginning of 2023, Steve will become our third President & CEO.  Like Ramey said to me and I’ve said to Steve, while there are some incredible highs and tough lows with this position, I wouldn’t have wanted to do anything or be anywhere else!”

Join us in congratulating Stephen Green, PE on his official promotion to CEO of Ramey Kemp Associates.

"I couldn’t be prouder of what we created thus far and I’m even more excited about the future here under Steve’s leadership."
Monty Irvin, PE, PTOE
