We sat down with Rick to learn more about his journey to Credera:
What led to your decision to join Credera?
After spending a decade being a hired gun, delivering technology projects across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, I was looking for a smaller company where I could put down roots to really invest in the people and help grow the next generation of leaders.
How would you describe your approach to leadership?
I’m a servant-leader at heart, focusing primarily on the growth and well-being of the people, teams, and clients I have the opportunity to lead.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in your career so far?
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Whether building a city, digitally transforming an organization, or realizing career aspirations—all require intentionality, strategic planning, and tenacious execution to be successful.
