A lifelong traveler, Rick has been to 25 countries, moved 25 times in his life and went to 10 different schools before finishing high school. Over the past 20+ years, he’s been working on Sales & Marketing strategies for many of the Fortune 500 companies including Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Merial, Intercontinental Hotel Group and Equifax.
Three years ago, Rick rode his bicycle from Portland Oregon to Portland Maine to visit as many friends and family on his Holiday Card mailing list as he could. Over 218 days, he pedaled 4,600 miles across 26 states. Along the way, Rick also met over 1,200 other people – he’s not a very shy person and he often asked strangers, “guess where I just rode my bike from…” which led to a lot of cool conversations. A lot of random acts of kindness too.
Rick previously served on the Board of Moving In The Spirit and was part of the team that created the first Strategic Plan and a repositioning towards Youth Development as a strategic focus. He took his two sons to performances at The Beam and the Rialto in the early years. Rick and his sons also shopped each year for contributions to the annual Holiday Store.
Rick is very excited to be working closely with the Board again in the areas of Development and Corporate Outreach to help widen the impact of this great organization.
