While spending more than 20 years in the financial world as a floor broker and trader on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Rick was able to learn what it takes to succeed in the most competitive industry in the world. Rick understood the sense of urgency that was demanded of some of the top futures and options traders in the world.
In 2011, Rick decided to take the knowledge and life experiences he had gained from the floor and started his own small business in the dry cleaning industry. He was able to recognize a need in the industry for corporations to provide an added amenity and perk to their employees. By offering on-site dry cleaning services, he was able to help improve the employees’ efficiency at work and at home.
While growing his business, he worked on developing his personal interests in the construction industry, running small side projects that included managing residential construction projects, and started his own property preservation and construction business that is still active after seven years.
Rick is currently transitioning back into the financial world as a financial professional and group benefit strategist for individuals and small businesses.
Rick enjoys spending his free time with his family that includes his wife, Sindy, daughters Charley (12) and Lexi (7) and his two dogs.
