Founder and Advisor
Rick has worked in the optometric field since 1989 – as a technician, optician, receptionist, manager, and as the territory director for 18 practice locations, $13.5 million in revenue and 120 employees.
In 2009, Rick left his position with one of the world’s leading frame manufacturers to become an advisor. Since then, he has worked with offices seeking growth and improved efficiencies, and he has helped people improve their team atmosphere, put systems in place to increase cash flow, and set goals for their practice locations. He is focused on helping his clients understand how to achieve and exceed the goals they’ve set.
Rick has worked with doctors in all aspects of their professional career, from opening their first locations who have gone on to quickly exceed revenue expectations. He has helped clients relocate, add associates and develop exit strategies. He also gives presentations throughout the United States, Canada and beyond, sharing his insight and inspiring others.
Rick and his wife Debbie have three children. Their oldest is in Graduate school, their second oldest is studying Biology, and the youngest is in High School. He enjoys hiking with his family and running.
