ABOUT RICK

Rick is obsessed with numbers, travel, and anything related to aviation -- don't get him started, he will talk your ear off!  In addition to doing the "boring stuff" of running the business, he is the airfare master and if he can't find it then it doesn't exist.

Rick served in the Navy as an E-6 TACAMO pilot and T-37 flight instructor (a joint assignment at Vance Air Force base).  Before making the full-time leap to Christopher Travel Rick led teams in corporate finance and controllership roles.

Rick graduated with Distinction from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1996 (Honors Mathematics) and graduated in the Top 3% of his class from Columbia Business School in 2009 (dual concentration in Markeing and Finance).

Rick is also active helping others in the travel community:
