In 2005 Rich Daughtridge partnered with friend and graphic designer Dave Schleigh launch a new marketing firm, HighRock Studios. Together, they assembled a talented team of creatives, marketers, and problem-solvers to work as an extension of our client’s team. As a storyteller and entrepreneur at heart, Rich saw HighRock’s success in launching brands for our clients as a unique opportunity to continue launching new companies, all connected by the marketing, technology, and entertainment industries. In the following years, Rich co-founded several ventures including Warehouse Cinemas, Warehouse Tap Room, Leitersburg Cinemas, Waynesboro Theatre, and LeftBrain Technology. With each new venture, Rich leveraged emerging technologies as the catalyst for success, all with HighRock's foundation in marketing and brand strategy.
