InfoRick was born and raised in Chalfont, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He was a member of the last graduating class of Central Bucks High School, a fact that, according to his sons, makes him really, really old.

After graduating from Penn State and spending a year in Colorado skiing, Rick came back to the Philadelphia area and entered the real estate business where he was instrumental in changing the handling of listings by the Bucks County Multiple Listing Service.

In 1975, he started with Connecticut General and its successor CIGNA. During his career with CG/CIGNA, he held positions in sales and management, finishing his career as executive vice president of the Corporate Financial Services operation in Philadelphia. There he was responsible for marketing CIGNA's financial services to Fortune 1000 companies in the area as a perk for their senior executives. Under Rick's tenure, CIGNA had client relationships with 9 of the 12 largest companies in Philadelphia. After leaving CIGNA, he started PeterAlexander in 1991 and continues today as its President and CEO.

Rick lives in Philadelphia with his lovely wife, Lisa, and their crazy cat, Baci. He is also the very proud father of two wonderful young men, Peter and Alex.

After his family, Rick's number one love is baseball. For years he was active as a coach and Board member of the Devon-Stratford Little League and continued his playing career with the Radnor Raiders of the Delaware Valley Men's Senior Baseball League until 2006, when he retired as gracefully as possible. If they ever start an “Over 50” league, however, he may make a comeback!

Rick is active in St. Luke United Methodist Church in Bryn Mawr, PA, where he serves as a Trustee and Chairman of the Finance Committee. He has also spent the last five years as a board member of Philadelphia City Sail, a non-profit organization providing an experiential learning environment for underserved and at-risk youth in Philadelphia teaching math, science, and team-building through sailing.
