Law firm partner joins Little Sunshine’s as president

Posted online

Brett Roubal, a 20-year private practice attorney, was named Little Sunshine’s Enterprises Inc.’s president, a newly created position for the provider of preschool and early child care education.

Currently a partner at Baird Lightner Millsap PC, Roubal is scheduled to start in July at the company that does business as Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool, according to a news release. The for-profit organization runs 22 preschools nationwide, with around $36 million in revenue and 640 employees.

“Brett is a pivotal addition to our executive leadership team as we continue to grow at a tremendous pace,” founder and CEO Rochette Dahler said in the release. “Brett’s dedication to personal success and the success of others, and his strategic approach to our long-term growth goals, are what will make him a great and highly respected president.”

Roubal already has experience with Little Sunshine’s, having represented its corporate interests in his capacity at Baird Lightner Millsap. With nearly 15 years working at the firm, according to his LinkedIn profile, Roubal previously was an attorney at Polsinelli PC, which no longer operates in Springfield.

At Little Sunshine’s, he’ll report directly to Dahler.

Little Sunshine’s recently ranked No. 6 on Springfield Business Journal’s annual Dynamic Dozen fast-growth list. The company reported $36.1 million in 2018 revenue, representing three-year growth of 110%.

“For years, I have watched and admired as LSP has experienced its phenomenal growth and success across the nation,” Roubal said in the release. “I am beyond excited to be a part of the success – the success of happy children, happy parents and the dedicated and caring LSP employees who make our families a priority every single day.”
