Something you'd never know about Dick from his resume:

"What makes me who I am is the good luck of being born above average in smarts and below average in athletic talents. My high school pals gave me a nickname. They still call me "Banker Dick". It was because I stood out even at the age of 16 as someone who was going somewhere important. I have not given up trying to share that focus of purpose with everyone I meet. Chemsultants is a honest place with a set of goals that including striving toward a good life for everyone here. This is exactly what "Banker Dick" was striving for, even before he got his driver's license nearly 60 years ago."
