Nicholas Ramirez - Chief Executive Officer

A love of skateboarding, and desire to help others is what led to my part in founding what Revolutionary Skatepark Company is today. It is my personal goal to put forth my best at all times to positively impact our community. Skateboarding has always been a large part of my life and is a great sport that I enjoy sharing with others. Growing up with skateboarding has helped to shape me into the man I am today and taught me self-discipline and intrinsic motivation. These key factors are a major motivational tool for me within the organization. I have so much faith in our team, our vision, and our combined knowledge being utilized to our fullest potential for helping as many young people as possible!

Kevin Raduka – Chief Operating Officer

I have been a ‘Sconnie my entire life. I’ve spent time as a bowling coach to kids of all ages, and am 
an avid bowler myself. While in high school, the scholarships earned through bowling helped me attend Carroll College in Waukesha, where I experienced first-hand how important it is to have access to an after-school program with quality mentors to develop your potential. After college, I moved to Madison and began working for AnchorBank, now Old National Bank. Developing business financial skills will help me ensure Revolutionary Skatepark Company is a resource for kids for years to come!

Gareth Olson - President

I'm a professional guy with over 20 years of IT, construction management and teaching experience. I grew up on gravel country roads, so I am not a skateboarder, but am an avid skier, gamer and cat aficionado. I know that being passionate about hobbies can lead to great learning experiences and plan to help make Revolutionary Skatepark Company successful with its mission and assist youth in finding and fueling their passion.

Brian Williams – Treasurer
Most of my life has been spent in Madison, and I'm enthusiastic to join Revolutionary Skatepark Company. Nicholas' dedication, and being able to give back similar opportunities that were given to me is what drew me in. I attended UW Madison and have been in the financial industry ever since.  I enjoy all types of games, traveling, and running/biking.

Mynda Joe – Secretary
I became a part of the Revolutionary Skatepark Company Board of Directors because I was immediately taken with Nicholas's vision. He is passionate about improving the lives of youth, through education and creating a positive, safe environment; an idea that resonates deeply within me. My life has been dedicated to working with children, from teaching preschool, to owning a dance studio, to working in a charter school
. The mission of Revolutionary Skatepark Company is one that has the ability to changes children's lives for the better. I am very excited about being a part of it and helping our vision blossom into reality. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my children, husband, and granddaughter. I also love reading and learning about history, social justice, and travel. And I am always up for dancing!

Adam Nichols – Marketing Specialist
I am 43 years old and originally from Dallas, Texas and started skateboarding back in 1984. Skateboarding has always been a part of my life and been a great influence for me. As an “older” skater, and parent myself, it is fun to see the guys show up with their kids and spend the day doing something together and active. With the long hard Wisconsin winters, an indoor skatepark is something very much desired by the community, and needed. With the success of the outdoor Madison skatepark, many are finding the value a skatepark can provide to an area. Professionally, I have been a graphic designer for 20+ years, designing for JCPenney, Kohls, Target, and now at Pacific Cycle Inc designing color and graphics for Schwinn bicycles. I am very excited to be a member of the board and to help our group become a pillar in the community.
