Ed Stack

Ramsey & Associates is guided day-to-day by Managing Partner, Ed Stack. Ed graduated from North Carolina State University (NCSU) in 1992, and his textile management background and leadership experience led to a management position with Sara Lee.

Years later, Ed found it difficult to turn down an opportunity to work along-side NCSU friend and former football assistant coach, Bobby Purcell, and eagerly returned to his alma mater, employed at the Wolfpack Club. Ed rose to the position of Associate Executive Director and had a range of responsibilities, from fundraising to nearly every aspect of the Carter-Finley Stadium expansion.

During his 16 years of nurturing NC State connections, one that would set him on his next career trajectory was that with Randy Ramsey – an NCSU Board of Trustees member at the time. Recognizing yet another opportunity to expand his career horizons, Ed signed on as Vice President of Administration and Development at Ramsey’s Jarrett Bay Boatworks. Here Ed brought together his manufacturing and fundraising expertise to vastly expand the operations of this world-class custom boat construction, shipyard & marine products enterprise.

Randy, Ed and their esteemed network of leaders have entrenched experience and recognition in how a variety of industries and entities function. This allows Ramsey & Associates to provide clients with engaged guidance, with an affinity for creative problem solving. The results are measurable economic benefits for your organization.
