As a fire chief officer Richard brings a critical thinking background of making life and death decisions in a matter of seconds that will determine success because failure is not an option. Success with these types of decisions is accomplished with a highly trained team working in harmony, and he lives this philosophy in every aspect of his business life, surrounded himself with people who, in his own words, "are smarter than him".
Despite the many ways he serves his community, Richard's wife and children come first. During this interview, he shares how he balances his priorities, while building a 3rd generation legacy that will live on long after him.
Smart, articulate and thoughtful, Richard shares the principles he lives by, the power of association, how to surround yourself with the right people (and say 'no' to the wrong people), give back to your community in simple ways, and how to fail your way to the top.
