He began his career in the financial planning and insurance industry in 1995 as an agent for New England Life Insurance. In 1997, Rich joined CCI Benefit Solutions as a Benefit Advisor to provide 401(k) expertise for client companies. He was integral at CCI to the development and implementation of the company's service commitment. In 2003 he became a Principal at CCI and was named the company's Vice President and CFO in 2005. As the company's retirement plan line of business grew under Rich's leadership, Third Party Administrator services were added to its offerings in 2007.

In 2011, CCI established Retirement Plans, Inc. and named Rich as President of the firm. In this role he is working to ensure that RPI is "Building Better Retirement Plans" by providing companies with efficiently designed plans, while providing their employees with the best tools available to help them prepare for a successful retirement. RPI strives to deliver plans that are hassle-free for plan administrators and to explain everything from fees to technical regulations in a clear, concise manner. Rich helps support this mission through a bi-weekly blog at www.rpi401k.com/the-blog.

Outside of the office, Rich can be found actively at work in the community and in particular with activities that support the growth and development of young people. In addition to being active in leadership roles in his church through the years, Rich serves as a VBS crew leader for kids each summer. From 2004-2012 he served on the Board of Directors for Alpha Sigma Phi, the nation's premier collegiate fraternity helping to bring cutting edge leadership and personal development opportunities to thousands of young men across the country. From 2008-2012 he served as Board Chair and helped usher in the first period with four consecutive years of growth, and the largest growth in membership in the organization's 167-year history. He is also a regular guest lecturer at The Ohio State University for a senior level course in Professional Development, and a frequent speaker for educational seminars at The Builders Exchange of Central Ohio. Today you will find Rich coaching youth soccer, little league baseball, or running U.S. Kids Golf tournaments in his "spare time."
