Rich is the Principal/President of one of NYC’s largest and most active real estate development/construction firms. With billions of dollars in completed projects, his firm is currently managing an active portfolio of approximately $1B in new work. In a business where fiscal responsibility is a must, he understands the difference between costs and investments, the constraints of collective bargaining agreements (union contracts) and is astute at setting demanding budgets that are realistic and achievable.
As a former military commander, he is an effective, non-partisan collaborator with the highest commitment to ethics.
A parent of four children who attend school in Wilton, Rich advocates for investment in our schools, not only as an educational provider but also as a major contributor to our real estate values. Rich spends his free time coaching Wilton Youth Sports and is committed to making Wilton a better place.
After the 9/11 Attacks, Rich (on the right) was called upon by the City of New York to assist in the management of the response. While on-site fulltime for fourteen months, he established protocols and managed the budget forecasts and accounting processes for all contractor & consultant operations providing daily cost updates to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and ultimately Congress which funded the effort under the Stafford Act.
