Mike Raymond, who had been the president of Curves International, Waco, TX, since 2005, resigned in December.

Raymond is now a senior advisor to the company and continues to serve on the Curves board of directors. He has been with Curves since 2002 and had served as its senior vice president of marketing prior to his promotion to president. He succeeded Gary Findley, who is now the chief operating officer for Snap Fitness, Chanhassen, MN.

“I wanted to do some other things,” Raymond says. “I’m still very actively involved with the company, and I still have an office there and do a lot of work there.”

Raymond says he is teaching at Baylor University, which is in Waco.

A company spokesperson says Curves has no immediate plans to fill its president’s role.
