Richard HackerChief Technology Officer
As CTO, Richard is responsible for handling the infrastructure and systems underlying all of Arbeit's products, as well as developing and optimizing new systems and maintaining the security and integrity of Arbeit's data.
Having worked with Alex and Alonzo dealing with the underlying technologies and internal processes of a collection agency, Richard saw the naturally emergent potential in a stagnant industry for labor-saving automation. Because of this potential, Richard brought together the other Arbeit partners whose abilities together created Arbeit.
With a background in legal, financial, and computer systems and technology, Richard has envisioned the potential for the innovative technologies serving Arbeit's clients today.
Some of Richard's responsibilities include:
Richard takes pride in the integrity of Arbeit's systems and is always motivated to watch for new ways in being prepared.

After graduating UB, Richard joined up with Alonzo and Alex running a collection agency from the ground up. From this experience, Richard saw the potential for disruption and brought on Allan, forming the four partners of Arbeit together.
