Riki is also an alum of Loyola University – Chicago (“LUC”) and is actively involved in the firm’s recruiting efforts. When LEAD was established in 2013, Riki was the first male member to join the group. He believes that women are, and always will be great leaders and should be recognized equally as men.
Recently, Riki organized and moderated the first ever Women in Public Accounting panel at LUC. The emphasis of the panel was to highlight success stories of women as leaders in the industry. Five CDH female leaders participated in a panel discussion about a variety of topics and to provide advice to the young women that are graduating from LUC.

IN HIS WORDS… “I worked closely with the panel participants to create questions and moderate a discussion that highlighted CDH’s LEAD program and overall success stories. The goal was to promote the public accounting industry that I am very passionate about, and specifically establish a larger footprint on campus that will enhance brand recognition and attract talented candidates to CDH.”
