Rick | Founder

A brand creator since day one! Which is January 11th in Cleveland Ohio. Richard is a trailblazer! After crushing it in radio sales, Rick signed on one of the 1st Fox affiliates in the country in Rochester NY and it became one of the highest rated Fox stations on the planet. From there, Rick pulled together every cent he had on earth and bought his first radio station. Rick created the legendary radio brands, ROCKET and STAR.

In 2002, Rick sold his then 6 Erie PA cluster of radio stations because this creator of brands now wanted to focus on other people’s brands. Rick went into the advertising agency biz. Today Rick and his team brilliantly build, evolve, and harness the power of brands every single day.
