Ric founded Celebrity Focus in 1987 with the idea that his experience as a rep would offer exceptional value to brands. He understood the needs of talent and could put that to work for corporate clients. His background as an athlete and collegiate coach led to a career as an agent, commercial agent and VP-Marketing for two major sports agencies (IMG & CSMG). Understanding that side of the table gave him the perspective necessary to build great deals that consider the needs and interests of each party; finding true "win-win" solutions that deliver results.
