From '71 until '77 Rich organized credit unions and conducted Risk Management training for credit unions, chapters, leagues, and CUNA and Affiliates in the U.S. and for the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) and CUNA Mutual Group's International Department overseas.

In 1977 Rich accepted a Senior Risk Management position with CUNA Mutual Group, moved to Albany, New York  and managed CUNA Mutual Group (CMG) Northeast District' Risk Management operations.

In 1980 Rich returned to CMG's world headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin and worked closely with WOCCU's to promote International Credit Union Risk Management performance standards throughout the world credit union movement.

On June 29, 2001, after 30 years working throughout the world credit union movement, Rich retired from CMG's Risk Management Department and on September 11, 2001 in response to the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil, formed "Risk Management 007 LLC," the parent company of "The Risk Management Learning Center." Early in 2002, Rich launched www.RMLearningCenter.com to provide internet support for a fast growing cadre of International Credit Union Risk Management professionals.

Beginning in spring of 2002, CUNA Mutual Group's International Department retained Rich through his Risk Management Learning Center to write "International Risk Management manuals and establish international credit union RM performance standard for Great Britain, Ireland, Poland, Jamaica and the Caribbean, Australia, South Korea and Asia, etc.  International Credit Union Risk Management performance standards included conducting Risk Management train-the-trainer workshops throughout WOCCU and CMG's international operations. 

Between 2002 and 2012, Rich obtained his Wisconsin Private Investigator (PI) license, ran for Sheriff in Door County, Wisconsin, continues to serve on Midwest Protection Incorporated's advisory board, was a charter member serving two terms as Chairman of ASIS International Chapter 067, is current Chaplain and two term Past Commander of his VFW Post 8337, and play crime fighting and homeland security role with Wisconsin's Financial Crimes Investigators (FCI),  the FBI's InFragard, and Southern Wisconsin Homeland Security Partnerships (SWHSP).

Note: www.ASIS067.com was sold in 2011 and is now operated by ASIS Wisconsin under www.asiswisconsin.org.

In 2006, Rich launched a veteran outreach website www.DoorCountyVeterans.com to field test "private sector" emergency response protocols when the scope of a community crises overwhelms or its duration exhausts public sector first responders.

In 2007 Rich began construction of a "Private Sector" Risk Management training facility and in 2008 a Private Sector Emergency Operations Center (PS-EOC), "Private Sector" Staging Area (PS-SA) and an underground "Private Sector" Command Post (PS-CP). All are used to model and field test "Private Sector" CIRTs (Critical Incident Response Teams) mobilized through the world credit union movement and US veteran organizations.

He is currently designing an internet based "Virtual Incident Command System" that was tested in Jamaica during Hurricane Ivan and again throughout the US gulf during Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma.

    His focus is on risks that threaten life safety, the quality of life, and the loss of property through robbery, terrorism, bomb threats, violence-in-the-workplace, and natural disasters. He also conducts workshops on a variety of pure and speculative risks to include: burglary, fraud, forgery, scams, and  embezzlement. He's always ready to discuss any risk of interest to his audience.

    Rich says, "My RM strategy is simple. Through my RM learning center employees learn to create and maintain safer and more security work environments. Through my community outreach center (COPs007.com) they take what they've learned home and prepare not only their family but their community for the next natural disaster or terrorist attack."
