Rick Sharp was a dynamic business leader, loving husband, doting father, and lifelong friend to many. From 1986 until 2000, he served as the CEO of Circuit City. Under his leadership, the electronics retailer grew from $175 million to $10.6 billion in annual revenue. He went on to found and lead used car superstore CarMax, and was a founding investor and Chairman of the Board of popular footwear brand Crocs. Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010, he, along with wife Sherry, vowed to do all that they could to help find a cure for this disease. Shortly after his death, in 2014 at age 67, Sherry Sharp founded the Rick Sharp Alzheimer’s Foundation in his name. The non-profit works with research and advocacy partners to raise awareness and critical funds to help the millions who are impacted by Alzheimer’s, and the families whose lives are touched by the disease. 100% of the dollars raised by the Rick Sharp Alzheimer’s Foundation go directly to funding research.
