Richard Brings over 20 years of industry experience to Altitude Resource Group and to the dealer community. His philosophy is to “always help the dealer increase their sales and improve their margins”. Richard believes that this ideology is central to how a good manufacturer’s resource agency should function. Even if that means telling the dealer that another manufacturer, not represented by ARG, is a better fit for a particular project. Professionalism and ethical conduct are core values at Altitude Resource Group.

When not working you can find Richard hanging out with his kids, scuba diving, sky diving, hiking, or biking in the Colorado rocky mountains. Richard loves to travel and learn new things. He is also very active in his community as a volunteer for several local charities.

RickRick Patterson
Account Manager

Rick’s addition to ARG comes with many years of experience in the contract furniture world, working for the factory as a rep and sales and marketing manager, training and encouraging other reps in their marketplaces. His skills in maximizing an opportunity comes with the knowledge of how a product is made, fits the space and especially fits the person(s) working in that space.

His degree in Interior Design and background as a business owner have given him balance in our industry in relating product, business needs and budget. It’s that balance that gives our customers and clients an assurance that we are working for them.

Outside of work (there is an “outside of work”?), Rick enjoys spending time with his wife, their kids and grandkids, hanging out and roaming whichever part of the country they happen to be in…Oh, and that balance…really helps on the Harley up in the high country!
