Rick is a very professional, detail-oriented individual. As a member of my Sr. Management Team, Rick was responsible for managing the overall operations of Popular Financials Wholesale Division. Rick was responsible for a complement of 250 employees, including 10 direct reports. Rick is a results-driven individual with a high level of integrity.
Rick and I collaborated on company quality control and policy and procedures. Rick's domain was operations and his innovations were ground breaking! His technical, organizational, and personnel skills were outstanding; it was a privilege working with him.
I can honestly say it was a pleasure working with Rick Franz. He is a man that adds value to any endeavor he undertakes. He was a most welcomed sounding board and offered great advice from his collective experiences and wisdom. I can definitely say I am a better manager for it.
Rick has worked and continues to work with Collins Pest Management, Inc. to achieve our business objectives. Rick has extremely powerful people skills and can provide objective feedback (negative and positive) in a concise, professional manner. Rick can focus like a laser beam on the real issues affecting your company and help you solve them quickly and efficiently.
Rick is a valuable and trusted partner of Collins Pest Management,Inc. We look forward to working with Rick on an ongoing basis for years to come.
I hired Rick to use his expertise in collection of past due accounts. He quickly developed a system that worked well for our company and clients. I continued working with Rick because he helped me see other areas of my business that needed focus and improvement. I could not imagine trying to grow and run my business without Rick's guidance. It's not surprising that our profits have increased each year that Rick has been involved. Thank you my friend !!
Rick is a gifted, strategic leader. We worked together on a high level cross-functional team of senior leaders who were brought together to implement the strategic direction of the organization and solve problems. Rick's insight and comments were always well thought out and inclusive - looking beyond the needs of his own organization toward the needs of the entire company.
He is an excellent leader, coach and developer of the people reporting to him and I would enjoy working with him again.
As SVP over Wholesale Lending, Rick provided the leadership that allowed this group to flourish. Rick understood the proper balance between sales and risk tolerance while continuously making his group more efficient and effective through process improvements.
Rick is a strong manager with hands-on experience managing multiple locations and staff. He is a good listener and communicates well with senior managers as well as line managers. Rick brings an enthusiasm to his assignments that is contagious. I enjoyed working with him.
Working with Rick has helped us to not only grow our business, but also helped us and our employees grow both personally and professionally.
Rick is a very valuable business asset. As my business coach, Rick is involved in every facet of our strategical planning and the execution of the plans developed. Rick helps hold me and my team accountable for the commitments we make. Rick also is a valuable sounding board for my new business ideas and gives me honest feedback from the standpoint of my business goals and objectives. If you are serious about achieving your business goals, Rick can definitely help you achieve them.
I began partnering with Rick in the fall of 2010. It was at that time that I had realized the wealth of knowledge and experience that he offers as a business coach. Rick is a phenomenal listener, and this serves his clients well as he is able to listen to a business owner's needs and translate these needs into actionable items. He is great at helping to identify plans, implement plans and then work with business owners to keep them on-track and accountable. I know as a business leader that I need someone who is not directly involved in my business to help me see my blindspots. That's precisely where Rick offers his greatest contribution. I would highly recommend Rick Franz to any business owner who is trying to grow (despite their own efforts) and who needs a coach to get them past their own hurdles.
