Greater Richmond ARC
The Greater Richmond ARC was started back in 1954 by a small, dedicated group of Richmond-area families as a grassroots organization that is today known as the Greater Richmond ARC. Each year they work towards their mission of creating life-fulfilling opportunities for individuals with disabilities and touch the lives of more than 1,250 individuals.
In the summer of 2015, John Walker took over as the Greater Richmond ARC’s new President and CEO. He replaced Marshall Butler who was stepping down after almost four decades with the organization. As with any organization that is now under new leadership, there were a lot of changes. “There were a lot of things related to internal finance reporting, systems changes, just a lot of stuff that needed to happen,” said Walker.
