After working for other brokerages, Rick founded Commercial One in the late 1980’s, which transitioned into DTZ Barnicke London Windsor Sarnia Ltd in 1995. He was National Chairman for DTZ from 2006 to 2009.

Rick is a proud sponsor of Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU) – an organization providing outreach, support services, and housing to at-risk and transient youth – since 2006. In 2015 he received the YOU Steve Cordes Community Star Award.
