MBA Executives in Residence

Executives in Residence are available to advise MBA students and alumni on various aspects of their career journey, exploring career change, building and managing one’s professional reputation, and pursuing leadership opportunities. They also offer one-on-one career consulting sessions. The Richmond MBA is proud to host two Executives in Residence.

Rick earned his Executive Certificate in Leadership Coaching from Georgetown University, an M.B.A. from the University of Colorado, and a B.A. from Grove City College.
