THE ASKFORENSICS TEAM
The AskForensics team includes experts with extensive experience in sales, account management, and executive coaching.
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.
