 CHARLESTON, W.Va., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Charles Ryan Associates

 Ryan moves to the position of chairman and chief executive officer of Charles Ryan Associates. Harry Peck becomes vice chairman of the company and will continue as president of advertising for the company.
 "Charles Ryan Associates has enjoyed consistent growth for almost 20 years and we are at the point where long-range planning is essential to move a firm of our size to the next level of growth. In order to do that, tremendous effort must be given to determine where we grow and how. This move will allow our ongoing operations to benefit from the management expertise of Pat Gallagher, while affording Harry Peck and me the opportunity to turn significant attention to the future," Ryan said.
 Ryan will expand his role in expansion opportunities, long-range planning and sales for Charles Ryan Associates and its sister company in the Washington, D.C. area, Ryan-McGinn.

 "I'm very pleased with the direction of Charles Ryan Associates and look forward to the role of chief operating officer. Our firm has developed excellent expertise in manufacturing, environmental services, health care and financial services. Charles Ryan, who pioneered public relations counseling in West Virginia, has four highly successful businesses in an area where most entrepreneurs have difficulty in succeeding in just one effort. With his vision and leadership, I look forward to another 20 years of sustained growth," Gallagher said.
