President and Chief Executive Officer

Rich has been with RG Group since 1986. He began as Regional Manager of RG Group (then named Die-A-Matic), was promoted to Vice President of Sales, Executive Vice President of Sales, Chief Operating Officer and then to his current position as President and Chief Executive Officer. He has over 37 years of sales experience in the industrial, hydraulic and manufacturing industry, and has served on several industry boards.

Rich enjoys being in a small business environment because “we can influence the company on a daily basis and that, to me, is very gratifying.” He believes in a service-based mindset and focuses on how to “make it better for shareholders, vendors and customers.” He views himself and the RG Group family to be advocates for customers to get the best services and support to achieve success.

Rich’s favorite part of working at RG Group is “The people! It’s a joy to be around these folks and to have the privilege of leading them. They are passionate about doing a good job and really dedicated to the customers. We strive and believe in our tagline of ‘global products delivered with world class service,’ and providing an ‘exceptional customer experience.’”

Family and a sense of contribution are what motivates Rich. “To me, it’s about how I take care of my family and my extended family, which is all the folks here at RG.”

Rich attended Kutztown University and is an International Fluid Power Society certified Fluid Power Specialist.

In a previous life Rich was a band leader and is an accomplished drummer and musical arranger.
