President and Founder
Rick has over 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur in delivering software and web-based information services. Rick started in the late 1980’s developing a business for an environmental law publishing company that had a side interest in construction lead publishing.
Next, he turned his attention to the construction industry and launched ConFax Publishing, the first information service to distribute construction sales leads electronically. After Southam Inc. purchased ConFax in 1995, Rick and his partners launched Ingenium Technologies that was focused on software development of information technologies for the construction industry. As Co-Founder and CTO of Ingenium, Rick developed the first successful web-based software as a service (SaaS) application for sales management in the construction industry. This service was acquired by McGraw-Hill and became the industry standard for construction lead management.
Following these successes, from 2011, Rick invested this experience in efforts that led to founding BuiltSpace.
Rick is both the CTO and President of our company, leading both business and technology strategy for us.
He holds a BSc(Agr) in Agricultural Economics from UBC.
