Chief Human Resources Officer
Open communication is king to Richard, who leads the people-loving, culture-crafting Human Resources Team. Got a problem? They’ll solve it. Need a new teammate? They’ll find one. Just let them know.
Richard brings over 20 years of experience in human resources management (including remote and international staff), workforce planning, talent management and employee relations and development.
When he’s not busy building and supporting the best professional HR team in the Treasure Valley, this native Idahoan is probably cycling in the great outdoors with his wife, Tanya, flipping pancakes for his four kids (two daughters and two sons), skiing, hiking or travelling, mostly to try new foods.
