Though he has earned several designations, Rich’s office isn’t plastered with certificates and degrees—it’s decorated with movie posters and his daughters’ artwork. As a dedicated father, his days outside of work are spent chauffeuring his girls to the mall and extra-curricular activities. Still, Rich’s history with the FBI lives on– In 2015, Rich was one of only 20 individuals in the San Francisco area selected to participate in the prestigious FBI Citizens Academy. As an alumnus, Rich now serves as its Treasurer and as a liaison between the FBI and the public.
