Rich graduated from Clawson high school in 1973. He worked in the furniture industry and then moved to a die cutting job and worked in the shop as well being property manager for that company. The Company owner was his mentor, were he learned about business. In 1997 things were slowing down at the shop and Rich needed to make more money. A friend said he would help and taught Rich how to wash windows.That was the start of Get Rich Quik Window Cleaning (company name was suggested by his mentor). He started washing new construction windows and that was his introduction to the construction industry. From there it was all hands on learning. His company name was changed in 2015 to GRQ CONSTRUCTION SERVICES. GRQ now provides 30 services to builders and remoldelers and now has 20 people on staff.
