BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
As Business Development Manager, Richard identifies and executes new areas of business—new markets, new distribution channels, new product offerings—typically through partnerships and gained networks. He spearheads all B2B growth with the CFO and leads that internal department within Skye.
Prior to joining Skye, Richard spent 5 years in Consumer Sales and Social Marketing. He had a successful crusade with Amway US, in their social marketing division and spent 3 years with Vemma Nutrition Company, promoting health and wellness.
"Knowledge acquired isn't as valuable as knowledge applied."
Richard grew up in a single parent home with 3 other brothers. Watching his mother raise 4 boys alone contributed to his "do it yourself," entrepreneurial mindset. He leads with drive and passion, which he learned not only from his mother, but by playing sports on both the high school and collegiate level. Richard enjoys public speaking and attending personal growth seminars when not working with Skye.
Richard studied Psychology and Business Administration at Ball State University. He lives in Richmond, IN.
