THE ASKFORENSICS TEAM
The AskForensics team includes experts with extensive experience in sales, account management, and executive coaching.
Rick Reynolds – Rick is co-founder and CEO of AskForensics. He brings unrivaled expertise in business forensics to the team, having led thousands of investigations over a 25-year period for best-in-class Fortune 1000 corporations.
Rick developed the model in the late 1980s when a venture capital firm asked him to evaluate “lost prospects” of a company seeking additional investment. Following this initial project, Rick built a very successful business providing objective and in-depth lost sales, account, and prospect knowledge to major corporations like ADP, Bass Hotels, Hyatt, IBM, Promus, Randstadt, S.C. Johnson & Sons, Sodexo, Spherion, Sun Microsystems, UPS Supply Chain Solutions, and Xerox. The formation of AskForensics in 2004 took this process to a much higher and strategic level. Rick’s expertise in sales, knowledge management, market research, and analysis has contributed toward building AskForensics into a world-class partner with major corporations to improve sales, retention, and financial results.
Rick is on the national board of the National Fragile X Foundation and served as a board member of Community Health Charities. He is also the Founder of the Reynolds Fragile X Fund at the Emory University School of Medicine. He holds an M.B.A. in Marketing from Georgia State University and a B.A. in Economics and History from Denison University.

His accomplishments in professional selling, domestic and international business, and business analysis provide a strong experience base for his role with the company. Prior to joining AskForensics, Frank was a founder, principal, and senior officer in two successful professional consulting firms that provided IT and telecom solutions to clients in business and professional services, government, healthcare, and travel. He has also managed sales and marketing, client relations, and project management for international firms.

Jim Curtis – Jim is uniquely qualified to conduct interviews, uncovering the voice of the customer. His background in research and communications features efforts to identify the most significant elements in client relationships that are large, complex and sometimes misleading. He uses this experience to help AskForensics uncover the key factors driving business decisions that impact their clients. Jim has tackled a wide range of writing, editing, and research tasks and is continually in demand for the indexing of scholarly and technical written materials, a task that requires sorting through sophisticated and sometimes abstract texts to pinpoint themes readers will want to understand and follow throughout the work. He has completed more than 300 indexes for scholarly books and for 6 years indexed two periodicals aimed at tax lawyers, accountants, and researchers interested in tax policy. Previously, Jim held faculty positions at Penn State University and Swarthmore College teaching political science. His research and publications focused on the relationship of tax policy and democratic government in the U.S. and Britain, analyzing specific details of tax policy that shaped the political systems of those countries.
Jim holds a B.A. from New College of the University of South Florida and a graduate degree from Cornell University, where he also taught courses on political philosophy during his course of study.
