With a degree in political science, Rich entered into a career as a consultant, where he spent many years plying his trade on the road. Learning about the mortgage world from a colleague who had joined Pulte, Rich pursued the path, knowing he would find a fulfilling home in the business of providing homes.
Rich directs his team as they work on projects to provide the best technical support and software tools to the various business teams at Pulte, allowing seamless integration and cross-department cooperation. Always innovative, Rich is currently working to adopt scaled agile framework methods in his department, providing greater value to Pulte as a whole.
“One of my favorite memories here at Pulte is seeing more than 100 of my peers gathering in front of the office for our MBA Opens Doors Annual Fun-Run—seeing folks get out of the office, at 3 PM, and running a 5k to raise money for a very important cause.”
“We’ve got a great Training Department here at Pulte that attends to the core needs of the business, but there are specialty skills out there that people want to acquire, and we do some innovative things around that. We’ll actually have people volunteer to identify good educational topics for the entire team—and create a class or session around that subject.”
