I never set out to make a statement with my life – I chose to make a difference with it. – Richard
Richard made it about the goal, not the role. He utilized advanced development and predictive modeling techniques to design programs that adapt rapidly to the changing face of healthcare. He also worked on creating relationships to enable seamless integration of new and existing services.
While growing Argus Community, Richard enhanced all facets of the organization’s culture. More functionality and different useful skill-sets were essential to nurturing an agile leadership team. With such vision as Richard demonstrated early on, it’s no surprise Argus has gained so much momentum moving beyond it’s 50th year.
