Administration

Rick Fisher

Rick Fisher

President

After completing an undergraduate degree in finance, accounting and computer science, Rick launched his career by designing and implementing an on-line order entry system for a multi-billion dollar healthcare distribution company. The success of that project ultimately placed him as the corporation’s Southeast Area Financial Services Manager and then later as their Operations Manager for a multi-million dollar distribution center in Denver, Co.

In 1984, Rick left corporate America to start his own company computerizing and servicing healthcare facilities along the Colorado front-range. He then sold his Colorado-based company in 1988 to become Vice President of a national software developer. Fourteen months later, Rick realized his passion was really to start, build, and manage his own service-based company, so once again he left corporate America.

From 1989 to 2009 Rick has started, built, and managed service oriented businesses in the healthcare and accounting software industry in addition to an electronic funds transfer company moving money through the Federal Reserve.

Since January 1, 2009, Rick has served as the President of Asset Preservation & Restoration Services.
