Richard began working in the automotive industry in 1967.
After a summer as a lifeguard in Atlantic City, NJ, Richard got his first job working for Pep Boys as a counterman. He left Pep Boys in 1968 and became a store manager in a local automotive retailer.
In 1970, Richard left the retail side of the automotive business and became a manufacturer’s representative in the mid-Atlantic region.
In 1987, he started calling on Pep Boys exclusively and soon after joined The Combined Group, which in those days was called Combined Automotive Representatives.
Richard continues to call on Pep Boys and works out of our east coast office.
