He will be remembered for his excellence, his drive, his generosity with colleagues and students and his wicked sense of humour. Rick was a brilliant academic with some major achievements. He had countless A* and A publications, numerous large scale grants, best papers at the Academy of Management and many teaching and research awards.
He was very much loved by his colleagues and students. He is survived by his daughter, Amy, his partner Shelly, Diane, his father and sister. I will announce funeral arrangements when the information comes to hand.
