As owner and CEO of Grandesign Media Services, Rick works out of the Grandesign headquarters in Orlando, FL, overseeing day-to-day operations throughout the company. Along with his partner, Aaron Gaeir, Rick set out to create a company that blends their twenty years’ experience in the Out of Home industry. He exceeded even his own expectations with Grandesign. By assembling a network of seasoned professionals who thrive in a fun, enthusiastic culture, Rick and Aaron created a company where employees have the ability to run their own business operations, in their own style, with the customer at the forefront. This philosophy has amounted to seven straight years of success for the company, with many more to come.

A Florida native, Rick loves living in Orlando with his wife Vivian. He has two daughters, Ashley, a graduate assistant at the University of Georgia, and Jennifer, who is attending graduate school at Duke University. In his spare time, Rick enjoys traveling, the Florida weather, and watching his favorite movie, Cool Hand Luke.
