Chief Financial Officer
Rick’s business savvy and disciplined work mentality make him the ideal Chief Financial Officer for any company, but his outgoing personality and dedication to his team make Rick the perfect CFO for Austin Benefits Group. With a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Michigan State University, a master’s in accounting from Oakland University, and his CPA license, there’s no denying Rick’s knowledge when it comes to the world of finance. He joined our team to manage the money and help us grow efficiently, which is no small task. With previous experience working at a large corporation and a tech venture, Rick’s eye for detail mixed with a start-up mindset give him an edge when it comes to thinking outside the box – a necessary skill at a forward-thinking company like ours.
When not at the office, Rick likes to spend time with friends and family, exercise and work on his vegetable garden in the summer.
Rick was awarded as one of Crain’s Detroit Business Twenty in their 20s Class of 2017.
