During his career, Rick has supported client projects in eCommerce, B2B, Supply Chain, Frontline/Retail applications, and more. He has worked for both a boutique consultancy and a massive global IT services firm; at Bradson, he applies the unique perspective he has gained from each approach to design and implement impactful solutions. Rick's core competencies include program, project, and portfolio management, product leadership, delivery frameworks, and team leadership.
Rick believes that values are critical to successful outcomes. In Rick's words: "Being entrusted with a client's success is a privilege. We do the right thing even when it's hard because that's who we are - it's a reflection of the shared values both of our company and the consultants we hire. Doing the right thing when it comes to our people means investing in them; they are our most valuable asset, and enabling our consultants naturally means better outcomes for our clients. Lastly, I believe it is critical in this rapidly evolving technology landscape to avoid complacency - that is why we encourage and promote ongoing curiosity and growth."
Rick spends his free time with his wife Erika and their two children, Rico and Caleb. His interests include fly fishing, golf, snowboarding, trivia, food, and travel. He graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Political Science, and has called the Greater Seattle area home for over 30 years.
