Founder / CEO
From newspaper routes and mowing lawns as an adolescent to working on cars as a teenager, Rick always enjoyed entrepreneurship. After finishing high school and a short stint at an auto mechanic school, Rick set his sights on becoming an electrical engineer. After receiving his electrical engineering degree from Michigan State in 1988, Rick moved to Silicone Valley and started working for IBM in Santa Clara, CA. Unfortunately, he never felt at home in corporate America so he returned to Michigan.
His affinity for woodworking lead him to travel to Ohio for a woodworking show. There he met a local man who built wood pipe organs for local churches. Rick convinced the stranger to offer him a job and he moved to Ohio. While he enjoyed the experience, Rick soon felt the strong desire to start his own company so he moved back to Michigan and started a handyman service. What started out as a small handyman operation has grown to a full service design and remodeling company.
From the very beginning, Rick wanted a company built on the reputation of excellence. Incorporating IBM’s professionalism along with core values as trust, integrity, service, and communication he set out to build a high quality, service-orientated remodeling company. Today, Rick is more determined than ever to take Sutton Construction Inc. to new levels of growth while still remaining true to those principles that have built this company up. In addition, Rick knows his Christian based faith is the driving force for his passion to better the lives of others while his dedication to hard work is the fuel to keep the company growing and expanding.
When not working, Rick can be found backpacking in the wilderness areas of Colorado, Wyoming, Utah or California. He has logged about 2,500 backpacking miles and has visited his favorite place on earth, Yosemite National Park, 21 times since he first rode his bicycle there in 1989 while working for IBM. Rick also enjoys reading, road and mountain biking, metal detecting, and spoiling his son’s Russian Blue cat – Spencer.
