He has also worked closely with many business partners, typically small to medium sized enterprises providing consulting services and custom solutions for clients.

  • was one of the first few members of a team that he helped grow to >1000 people
  • helped build business units from tiny to huge revenues
  • managed people and helped them develop their careers across cultures & geographies
  • drove product strategy & helped introduce new products to market
  • delivered many product releases, managing product development to ensure timeliness and quality
  • helped acquire companies, big and small
  • studied at business school, getting an MBA along the way

With The Alternative Board, Richard has found a shared vision of how business owners can be successful. He is passionate about continuous improvement – even great organizations have to get better. He believes that working through your strategy in a structured way with a team of your peers is how you achieve the best outcomes. TAB’s tools help to provide that structure, and TAB’s monthly cadence of board meetings and coaching sessions enable driving those outcomes. If you’re tired of being alone, want to make better decisions and grow your business, and want to enjoy your life, Richard and TAB will help you do it!


Member Success

Our TAB Board members and facilitator have helped us deal with the on-going business issues we have faced over the years as a laser job shop. They have worked with us to plan strategically and helped ensure we are secure during the economic downturns and to capitalize on our strengths and grow in a controlled and targeted way. Our three partners now work together much more effectively as a team making all our working time more pleasurable. I am glad I found TAB.

The Alternative Board is a place to learn and gather information. It is a group of people to bounce my solutions or ideas off before I try them. I gain valuable input for the decisions I have to make. Also it is very easy to see other’s mistakes, but not realize you have made the same mistake or are currently making the same mistake. Decisions, solutions & especially employee issues become obvious.

The best business decision that I’ve ever made (besides opening my store) was to join the TAB Board. It taught me how to structure and formulate basic fundamental policies and procedures; it has helped me sharpen my vision for future business and personal goals. The TAB Board provides a safe place to bounce around ideas and receive honest, creative solutions to important business challenges. Coaching sessions are professional, focused and very enlightening. They have helped me work on my business and not in my business. My recommendation – JOIN!
