Rick Michalec

Business Development

“Do what’s right, not what’s easy … even when no one’s looking.” This is Rick’s personal motto, and it sums up his approach to doing business.

Rick is responsible for identifying business opportunities and developing key customer relationships. He has 11 years of experience in the plating industry. Prior to that, he retired from the U.S. Army after 23 years in reconnaissance.

He enjoys playing golf and traveling, especially to Germany to visit his daughter and to Mankato where his son attends college. And while his kids are always in his thoughts, it’s his dog Lucy, a German Shorthaired Pointer, that’s always by his side.
