With more than a dozen years of experience as a CFO for both a startup and a Fortune 500 company, Rick understands what it’s like to be in his clients’ shoes.
Client service is paramount at Fischer Cunnane, and Rick has championed that core value since joining the firm in 2002.
He sees himself as the client’s proxy—whether he’s leading an audit, an internal controls review, or providing client assistance for an acquisition.
During his client interactions, he internalizes their long-term goals and objectives so that he can articulate that vision to the rest of the Fischer Cunnane team.
Rick’s commitment to client service began early in his career during his four years with Deloitte, and it was solidified over 11 years as regional CFO and controller for a Fortune 500 corporation. His responsibilities ranged from performing acquisition due diligence to streamlining the financial operations of a multi-billion-dollar division.
Throughout his career, Rick has developed fluency in tax concepts in addition to his deep accounting and audit expertise and overall business acumen. Rick is able to draw on that broad background to help his clients weigh the potential risks and rewards of various options for managing a growing business, especially in an economic and regulatory environment in constant flux.
Rick resides in West Chester with his wife Maureen and has four grown children.
