Attendee Bio
Rick is a 25 year veteran of the staffing industry and the founder of Harvyst Consulting Partners. Harvyst is designed to assist staffing owners in their quest to continuously increase staffing revenues and gain market share. Having served in senior leadership roles with organizations such as Modis, Kforce, Corestaff, and The Willis Group throughout his tenure, Rick has been tasked with helping organizations build winning cultures that ultimately reshape the business results to reflect an approach that starts with understanding what makes a company truly different. Additionally, Rick serves as the Director for TechServe Alliances Sales and Recruiting Management Program. A program specifically designed to provide weekly, one-on-one coaching of staffing sales and recruiting personnel in an effort to achieve improved performance results.

Rick firmly believes that results speak for themselves. A leader must first understand what the organization is trying to achieve; determine if the existing resources can get the organization to its desired destination; provide a clear vision for all to see and follow; emphatically communicate that vision; and along with those who will be involved, draft the plan to get them there and make sure that they are trained properly to achieve results. Then it comes down to execution and personal accountability.

With more than 25 years in the staffing services business and another 13 in the pharmaceutical world (Warner-Lambert/Pfizer), Rick has learned that success comes from knowing what you have and then building clear differentiators to set you apart from all others. To attest to that belief, Rick received the “International Sales Manager of the Year” award three times during his tenure at Warner-Lambert; received Market of the Year honors for his work with the Atlanta operation of Kforce; and had three of his branches take home the honor of “Branch of the Year” while operating as the SVP of the “Southern Region” for Modis, Inc.
