Rick has been a life-long entrepreneur but considers these past several years working with Select GCR clients among the most rewarding. Throughout his career, he has been involved in more than a dozen companies from startup to turn around. Selling to the federal government figured prominently in many of them. For over 20 years, he sold to dozens of federal clients as both sub and prime and mastered multiple types of contract vehicles and procurement methods. Whether you’re best suited for SAP, DIBBS, FSS, GWAC or IDVs of all stripes, he can position your company to increase your federal cash flow. After finalizing the sale of his last company in 2018, he joined the Federal Business Development Team at Select GCR.

While the government provides a mountain of free material on how to do business with the Feds, most attempts still produce no results. The Select GCR team brings the perspective of successful entrepreneurs and a deep understanding of several strategies for scaling your business within the federal sector. We are honored to say that through his industry knowledge and the support of an amazing team he has attained Platinum Elite Status by his clients attaining over 200M dollars in government contracts, grants, and other financial assistance.

“I look forward to the opportunity to discuss your business objectives and ultimately help you achieve success in government contracting.”
