Meet the Team – Rick Fribush, Partner, Practice Director

Meet Rick Fribush, CSP Co-founder, Managing Partner and Practice Director – Accounting and Finance. 

Rick began his career as a CPA in public/corporate accounting. A few years into his role, he realized that his passion was focused more on building relationships and helping accountants develop their careers. He eventually transitioned into the recruiting side of the industry and has been focused on recruiting for accounting and finance roles in the mid-Atlantic region for the last 25 years.

“I am guided by two core beliefs in my career. The journey in career and life is a marathon, not a sprint. And doing business the right way is by always doing what I believe in my heart is best for the candidate.” 

Rick has helped countless people to navigate their careers and has enjoyed watching them grow from young accountants to C-Suite roles. Today he leads a team of professionals at CSP who are helping to support the next generation of CFOs navigate their career paths. 

No matter Rick’s role professionally, family is always his number one priority.  He married his high school sweetheart, Hope, 28 years ago and together they have sons Alec and Brett and a daughter Jillian.  “My parents are my biggest role model – they have been married for more than 58 years. I’ve learned from their relationship that it’s about the company you are with and not where you are. Having the opportunity to watch my kids grow into adults, and balance a career that enables me to spend ample time with them–from traveling to watching sports, and going out to dinners–has been the most rewarding experience.”

Outside of work and family, Rick enjoys working out, golfing, spending time with friends, and eating meals out as often as possible – especially from new restaurants.
