On Jan. 24, 2020, Rocky Mountain Resources Industrials Inc. CEO Gregory Dangler filed a Schedule 14C report to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission stating that the company had changed its name to Rocky Mountain Industrials Inc.
The filing references a Notice of Action sent by the Rocky Mountain Resources Industrials Inc. Board of Directors on Jan. 14 to holders of common stock in the company regarding the name change.
According to the SEC filing, the name change was to take effect 20 days after the Jan. 14 notice to stockholders, or Feb. 4.
The name change means that the company acronym, which has been RMR, will now become RMI.
References to the company on the LoveGlenwood website will use this new acronym and name. Blog posts pre-dating the Feb. 4 name change effective date will retain the previous company name.
Jan. 1 leadership shuffle
The name change comes just a few weeks after the company announced a leadership shuffle that moved Gregory Dangler, previously RMR’s president, into the CEO position that had been held by Chad Brownstein.
In a Jan. 3, 2020, SEC filing, RMR announced that Brownstein “has retired from his position of Chief Executive Officer of RMR Industrials, Inc.,” effective Jan. 1. Brownstein would “continue in his position as non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors and remain an employee of the Company for the near term.”
In 2019, RMR paid $438,576 to the law firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP, for lobbying services with federal officials at the U.S. Department of Interior. The law firm’s chairman, Norm Brownstein, is Chad Brownstein’s father. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt, who oversees BLM, is a former employee of the law firm.
The Jan. 3 filing also notes that RMR had hired John Anderson, a former regional vice president of operations for Quikrete, to serve as company president, responsible for day-to-day operations.
