Rich has over twenty-five years of management experience in the the commercial printing industry. This includes several years as a training supervisor and member of human resources and ultimately managing a department of over three hundred employees. He has always been fascinated by technology and has been involved with computer tech since the first offerings were made to the public.
As the economy began to suffer Rich experienced a downsizing at two different companies and then a plant closure at a third location. This provided the opportunity to take advantage of government grant money which resulted in three different computer tech certifications (Comptia A+, Comptia Network+, and Microsoft MCDST). Shortly after that, he was asked to consider working part time as the Interim Director of Administration at First E. Free, and as the church worked through a time of transition, the position became full time.
Rich is married to Jeannie and they have two daughters. Alexandra Elizabeth and Caitlin Elyse who live in San Jose, California. Both girls are working and faithfully serving the Lord. We can choose to wonder, or even worry, but ultimately we need to trust God, and this has been realized completely through Rich’s life verse which is Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight. (NASB)
