After 14 years in business, the partners of Ocean, Rose Associates, Richard Ocean and Lee Rose, have decided to close the company and pursue other opportunities. In a statement, the partners explained: "We've had a great run, but the time has come to look at new challenges. This was an incredibly hard decision to make, but we think it's the right decision at the right time. We'd like to thank all the clients, vendors, and our friends who have supported us since we started in 1984." The company offices were officially closed July 31, but the phones will remain on for several months to ensure that people can still contact the partners. In addition, their website will be up through this month.
