Rick began his career in public accounting in 1982 and is now a Principal in Scheffel Boyle’s Belleville office. He serves a variety of clients, including non-profit organizations, local government bodies, construction contractors, and many more.
Rick decided to go into public accounting after admiring family members who had worked in the field. He enjoys assisting clients with their tax and financial accounting needs because he can help make a sometimes challenging processing much less frustrating for them. Throughout his career, he has assisted many clients who experienced an unpleasant event in their life find financial stability and continue on in a positive direction. He enjoys being that trusted resource for people when they need him most.
Rick grew up in Swansea, Illinois and still lives in town with his wife, Janet. In his spare time, he enjoys golfing because he says, unlike some people, he finds it relaxing rather than frustrating. He also dabbles in antique vehicles and mechanical clocks as hobbies. Rick enjoys being at Scheffel Boyle because he says “there’s no ‘I’ in team.” and his colleagues provide an enjoyable, collaborative atmosphere that continually improves the quality of service he is able to offer his clients.
