It may have taken him slightly longer than 80 days, but sales-team member Rich Futrell has just about circled the globe: He’s spent time visiting coffee farmers in Peru; teaching English in Japan; owning/operating a popular Raleigh cafe called The Third Place; and on a Peace Corps mission in Morocco, where he met his lovely wife, Liz. During his long and varied tenure as part of the Counter Culture family, Rich has done much to develop and define not only the role played by the customer support team with our wholesale partners, but he has also participated as a member of CCC's Direct Trade Committee, working alongside Peter, Kim, and Brett on the development of that certification program.
Rich and Liz recently moved back to their native stomping ground of Chicago, where they happily dote over their daughter, Liliana Genevieve. When he’s not cooing at little Lily or out riding the trails on his mountain bike, Rich can usually be tracked down in his garden, hanging out with his friendly collection of compost-munching worms.
