                       FO Staff Councilor Term:  2013-2016.

After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, the first 16 years of Dick’s career were spent as a staff accountant at a CPA firm, an internal auditor for a Fortune 1000 company, and a Controller for a regional agricultural products manufacturer.  Dick began his career at the University of Iowa in 1995 with the Internal Audit Department where he spent almost 12 years.  There he was given a range of responsibilities encompassing compliance audits, process audits and fraud investigations and as a manager in the department, was responsible for the supervision of other auditors and their projects. That experience allowed Dick to work with units across the entire campus gaining knowledge and insight about the great things accomplished here at the University and the issues confronted by units and individuals.  In 2007, Dick transferred to the Organizational Effectiveness department where his main responsibility as an internal consultant have allowed him to assist units and individuals from across the entire campus improve the efficiencies and effectiveness of business processes through the use of the lean process improvement methodology.  In this role he actively partners with constituents to help them look at different ways to examine and solve problems regarding their business processes and work environments.
