Rick joined the University of Dayton in October of 2017, as the Vice President for Facilities Management and Planning. Previously, Rick was the Vice President of Energy Consulting for Cenergistic; his responsibilities included implementing a multi-million dollar energy conservation program at the University of Kentucky. Prior to that, Rick was the Physical Plant Director and Chief Facilities Officer at Oklahoma State University (OSU).  He provided overall leadership and management to a 645 person customer service-oriented organization that developed, managed, maintained and operated OSU’s facilities and infrastructure.

Rick is a Professional Engineer (P.E.) and LEED Green Associate with over 24 years of experience in positions related to facilities and utility systems operations, maintenance and construction.  He is a retired Air Force Civil Engineering Officer with 22 years of service to our country.  He earned his bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from Oklahoma State University.  He also has a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Troy University and a Master’s of Science in Engineering and Environmental Management from the Air Force Institute of Technology.

In his role at the University of Dayton, Rick maintains a high level of customer satisfaction, and provides leadership in the operation, maintenance, renovation, and construction of University buildings, grounds, maintenance and upkeep, residential properties maintenance, parking lot maintenance, sustainability, energy management, real estate, and other physical plant infrastructure of the 400 acre campus totaling over 5.4M SF of buildings.  He exercises leadership in the planning and design of all major construction work and new construction, and the development/maintenance of a long-term campus environmental and building development plan.  Rick serves as the principal liaison between the division of FMP and the university constituents whom it serves, as well as the President’s Council & Facilities Committee of the Board of Trustees.

What initially attracted Rick to the University of Dayton was its reputation for being a top-tier Catholic research university and the Marianist tradition of educating the whole person to create a better world. Rick shares,”I also love the great people I work with on campus every day, they truly care about our students.  I have never been in a better working environment. Go Flyers!”
