    It has been 5 years since I have known Rich, as both a close friend and colleague. I was first introduced to Rich when I joined Amway North America where he was working as the Lead Business Analyst supporting Marketing in making decisions and developing business plans by summarizing insights based on the Business Information Warehouse data sets. Rich is of the most disciplined and technical persons I've had the pleasure to work with. His ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and nerve-wracking deadlines speaks volumes about his hard work, determination, and composed demeanor. During the Portfolio Pricing and BV/PV readjustment process, he worked as the analytical project leader and demonstrated excellent people skills and morale.

    Rich does a great job thinking through what the business question is, then working on providing numbers that meet the need along with his insights. He has great critical thinking skills and is a terrific teammate.

    I am very much able to recommend Rich. He was a terrific asset to Amway over his many years of service to the company. In his last role at Amway, he led the Forecasting efforts to which he was responsible for understanding the direction of the business and to help tell the story to why (through data/KPIs) the company was in that direction and expectations toward the future. I relied each week on Rich to help me tell the story to executives on the state of the business and future outlook. Prior to that, Rich held the role of a Lead Analyst supporting the Marketing team. That team trusted Rich to not only pull their data but also tell a compelling story for their programs and how they were able to impact the top line through promotions, launches, etc. Rich was a trusted asset and his customers always spoke very highly of his efforts and commitment.

    Rich is a very organized, thorough, and dedicated professional who has a strong history in financial analysis, data visualization, and forecasting. He communicates technical concepts to non-technical audiences very well, and is very comfortable interacting with all levels of an organization.
