A member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Nova Scotia, Rick worked for a decade with a national public accounting firm, before a nearly 20-year tenure at Fred C Morrison Ltd./Bearing Power Canada Limited, as a corporate controller. He then went on to serve for two decades as Vice President of Finance for WearWell Garments Ltd., a Nova Scotia manufacturing company.

Rick has served as treasurer for the Office of the Employer Advisor’s (OEA NS) Board of Directors since 2019.

“Having worked in a manufacturing entity for two decades, I know how important workplace safety is to both the employees and the employers; it’s a top priority. In order for the WCB to be sustainable in the future, we need an insurance system that meets the needs of the injured worker and is cost-effective to the employer. My goal is to add value to this endeavour.”
