He holds the Hilti Firestop Certification, an electrical and plumbing license and food safety and sanitation certification, among others.
Rick says that as a senior superintendent at Conco, he’s required to be a “professional, compatible companion who knows the business, mentors the younger generation, keeps current on new technology and builds relationships with fellow employees and trade partners.”
