Jim Yurik

Resourcing Manager

The teamwork and client-focused approach that is displayed on a daily basis at Richardson is what inspires me. Working alongside such talented individuals who share a common goal of client success is truly motivating. Overseeing the resourcing department, I have the unique opportunity to manage projects from the beginning of our design process all the way to the ILT delivery. Along that cycle, the teamwork demonstrated to fulfill our client’s needs is unwavering.”

Jim has been a member of the Richardson team since April of 2014.  In his current role as Resourcing Manager, Jim is responsible for overseeing the resourcing department, which includes resourcing of Richardson’s Instructional-led Facilitators,  Designers, and Account Directors, which requires managing, coaching, and working closely with the Resourcing Specialist.

Amy Smalfus

Vice President, Content and Learning Strategies

“The best thing about Richardson is our belief that increased self-awareness is the key to greater success, coupled with our know-how around helping every individual gain the insights needed to increase their effectiveness while being authentic to their true self.  As Galileo said, ‘We cannot teach people anything; we can only help them discover it within themselves.’”

Being entrusted with the responsibility to refresh and modernize our content and curriculum for our clients is a dream, an honor, and a privilege. And it’s a job that takes a village.  I am grateful to be surrounded by so many thoughtful, creative, and talented colleagues who help bring the vision to life for our clients. I am so grateful for the timeless foundation Linda Richardson gave to us and the skills and values she inspired us all to embrace and cherish.”

Amy has over 25 years of experience in the learning and performance improvement field with 17 years dedicated to sales performance improvement. She worked directly with Linda Richardson early in her career. Her passion for Richardson’s content and approach inspired her to return to Richardson over 10 years ago. In her current role, she is responsible for ensuring the ongoing quality and relevance of Richardson intellectual property and learning solutions.  This includes creating our Connected Curriculum and refreshing existing content and programs to appeal to the modern learner and include blended solutions.

Dennis Grieco

Master Training Consultant

“As trainers we need to take our client’s business goals and create behavioral change that matches those goals. We also need to ensure that the classroom experience is realistic, challenging, and fun so that participants not only want to learn, but will walk out with improved skills that they can implement immediately.”

As a 24-year veteran at Richardson, Dennis wears many hats with the company. As a training consultant, he is a top-level and highly skilled facilitator for world-class sales organizations across industries, as an instructional expert, he supports the design of many of Richardson’s programs, and as a master trainer, he takes responsibility for the development of all Richardson Senior Training Consultants to ensure that they are able to meet the high standards that our clients have come to expect.

Clark Owen

Regional Vice President of Sales

“The most gratifying part of working for Richardson is when clients put their trust in us when the stakes are personal and expectations for results are high.  When I ask clients why they chose to work with Richardson, I often hear things like:  ‘You demonstrated your approach; you walk the walk; we want to sell just like you; compared to your competition, it was no contest; you really understand us; you gave our executive team the confidence to invest.’ It’s rewarding to develop personal relationships and hear that Richardson feels like a part of their organization. I also appreciate working with great colleagues who bring commitment and enthusiasm to each and every engagement, knowing we make a real difference for our clients.”

Clark has been in Sales Performance Improvement consulting since 2005.  Prior to that, he held positions in sales, sales leadership, and general management.
