Outside the Office

Randy is a former two-sport collegiate athlete who injects that competitive edge into everything he does, including pick-up games with his three children and their friends. When he’s not working or thinking about the work that he truly enjoys, he skis with his wife and children in the winter, golfs in the summer, coaches his children’s football, soccer and baseball teams and squeezes in a workout whenever his crazy schedule permits. Randy also devotes his time to causes and non-profit organizations that make a difference in the community.
