Dick started the journey to success in the world of business when he graduated with Bachelors of Business Administration from the Northwood University. The first major job he held was when he was appointed as the CEO to Orlando Magic. That position came in 1991, and now, close to three decades later, he has held so many more similar and even more prestigious positions that he can be termed as a business administration expert.
He is currently the president of the company that he founded, the Windquest group. He has been the head of the company since its inception 14 years ago. He has been using the company to help people manage their investment option. The company, which is located in Greater Grand Rapids in Michigan, is one of the best in the area when it comes to financial management. The main businesses that the company takes interest in include:
- Clean-tech solutions
- Non-profit organizations
The resume of the man is interesting because unlike many other business leaders, he is the master of multi tasking. He was still the CEO of the company he is heading right now when he started the West Michigan Aviation Academy, which he is the head of board to. Before then, he chaired the Willow Creek Committee. The willow Creek committee is a charity organization that helps young men who are interested in church ministry learn everything they need to know about religion. The organization has been working since 2007 and has made many gains in helping young religious leaders. He is also a board member at Amway.
Skills that have shaped the career success of the man include leadership, strategy in planning, team building, public speaking, customer service and ability to deal with non-profits.
Dick DeVos is also a family man, when he is not at work making huge business deals; he is always at home spending quality time with his wife and four children. There are people that claim he inherited his knack for business from his father, but whether this is true or not, it is safe to say that he has made a name for himself in the world of business and that he is a force to reckon with in his field.
