“Together we win.” This motto is a career-driving force for Rich Vazquez. 

 

As managing director at The Hotaling Group, which was established twenty-years ago and headquartered in New York City on Park Ave, the senior level executive has already built one of the full-service, risk management firm’s fastest growing teams nationwide.

Positioned on the business development side of his company, Richard focuses on identifying potential clients and engaging them in conversations to understand their financial and business goals. Through such assessment, Richard advises on the full scope of financial services his firm offers; from estate planning and employee and executive benefits, to compensation and retirement planning needs. Particularly sensitive to tax strategy and mitigation planning, Richard then assists in developing strategies to preserve his client’s wealth and estates.

With his sights set on national growth, Richard is committed to expanding THG’s East Coast presence from New York and Long Island to Miami, Atlanta, Boston, and Los Angeles.

Prior to his current post, Richard was a rising star at Northwestern Mutual, where, as financial advisor and field director, he garnered forty accounts within his first six months, building his book and achieving the prestigious award of Pacesetter First 40, a milestone that less than 10% of the industry achieve. The bilingual, Spanish-speaking executive proudly built the Agency’s internship program, improving its nationwide internship program ranking from 78th of 80 to 20th of 80.

 

Outside of the office, Richard seizes opportunities to achieve at extreme sports. He enjoys body building and in 2018, competed in a semi-professional NPC Competition, which was a significant personal accomplishment for him. He ranked among the Top 10 on stage, while working 60+ hours, competing with those who devote all their time to bodybuilding as their profession. A travel lover, who enjoys hiking and snowboarding, he recently realized his adventurous goal of snowboarding The Rockies and climbing both Huayna Picchu and Machu Pichu.
