Rick has a passion for business…all businesses big or small. A graduate of Ryerson in ”Print Management”, Rick developed his expertise through some of the top print companies in Toronto. He became VP of a Toronto creative firm before starting his own graphics business in May of 96. From his start in an 8x10 office to our current modern 40,000-square foot facility in Markham, Rick has remained focused on exceptional client service and hiring knowledgeable people who are best described as “people” people.
Rick’s favourite saying is “There are 3 things that count in business “Image, Image and Image” followed closely by “Cash flow is King”. Rick has a tremendous amount of business knowledge and experience which he freely shares with others starting a business or facing various problems that arise in the normal course of building a business. Rick is very proud that Ravenshoe has developed into a successful family business with Kim (his daughter), Mike (his son-in-law), Mike (his son) and Dan his brother, all active members of the firm. So if business is your passion, you have come to the right place.
Rick can often be found cruising Lake Ontario or the Trent/Severn waterway aboard his SeaRay Sport Cruiser “Compromise”. He loves to share the boating experience with his wife Linda, family (including 2 young grandchildren) and friends. Topics of conversation range from business to politics to child rearing to wines and right on down to video games ( Rick being one of the oldest active X-Box participants…”Call of Duty” anyone? )
Other interests include golf, baseball, hockey (Go Leafs Go) auto racing (Nascar Indy, and Formula 1)
