Rich brings a diversity of leadership experience to the Dingman Company that spans from the business world, across the church community, and into Christian higher education. For five years Rich served at Regent University, as Director of Campus Ministries and Adjunct Faculty. Before that, Rich had been a Vice-President of Operations of a multi-site high-end retail jewelry business. There he gave leadership in brand management, supply chain and vendor management, and sales training. Together, he and the CEO initiated a values-based corporate culture and business model. His passion for leadership coaching and development, strategic planning and entrepreneurial ventures involved him in a new church start, as well as pastoral ministry in large, local churches. He has shared this passion to encourage others to greatness through private consulting, serving clients from small business to large, thriving churches, and regional church networks in organizational best practices. Rich is also an ordained minister in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

Rich’s relational empowerment model and cross-industry experience make him a natural for executive searches; he has a quick and intuitive grasp of client needs, and extensive experience analyzing cultural ethos and fit for values-based companies.
