Rick J. Buccheri II, MSOD
Director of Programs
Rick Buccheri II is a mediator, facilitator, trainer, consultant and coach with over eight years of professional practice in alternative dispute resolution. Rick joined ADR Vantage in 2014 as the program manager bringing a passion for helping people and organizations experience positive transformation and transitioned to Director of Programs in 2015. Rick began his career as a mediator and facilitator where he developed mediator educational support programs, and where he helped bring resolution to community-wide disputes. His interest in conflict resolution grew as he began to notice how people, organizations, and their environments were all impacted by one another. He went on to earn his M.S. in Organizational Development from American University, during which time Rick served as a consultant on two major projects. One was designed to help a disengaged board of directors reignite their passion, and remain focused on fulfilling the needs of a multi-serviced nonprofit organization. The other was designed to align executive leaders at a public facility in South Africa around a shared mission and strategic initiatives. Rick is a thoughtful consultant who draws on his curiosity and commitment in his work with his clients. He also has an adventurous side. He boasts about his trip to South Africa and his experience there bungee jumping and swimming with great white sharks.
