Rich has known his wife since she was in the 6th grade and they have two daughters. One works at BMW and the other is a freshman in college. Home is his favorite place to be and nothing is better than his family sitting at the table together and making fun of each other before trying to get out of doing dishes.
What do you love to do outside of work?
Spend time with my family. I’ve known my wife since she was in the 6th grade and we have two daughters.
What’s your favorite travel destination, or where would you like to go?
Torch Lake, Michigan. I spent several summers there with my grandparents who owned a 4-cottage resort on the lake.
What is your greatest piece of life advice?
Figure out who your children are and let your relationship with them supersede what it is that you want them to accomplish in life.
