Richard’s experience in public accounting, as a CFO, and as an entrepreneur, allows him to bring a unique blend of strategic insight and perspective to his investment banking activities at CSG Partners.

He was also founder & CEO of TeamAlliance Technology Partners, LP, a leading national technology staffing services provider.
