Performance Team Principals
Rick Snowden, President and Founder
Graduating with a BA in History from Rutgers College in 1974, Rick has been involved exclusively with the sales and marketing professions since then.
Starting as a territory sales rep, he held sales and management positions in territorial sales; commercial major and national accounts; governmental, academic and medical institutional markets; training; and marketing development. This was over a 20 year period in the highly competitive and demanding business equipment industry, selling copier, facsimile and word-processing systems with the Savin and Minolta organizations.
Establishing SMR Group Ltd in 1995, Rick’s background, including experiences with recruiters as both a hiring manager and a job candidate, uniquely prepared him for early and enduring success in the search and recruitment profession.

After graduation and entering the corporate world, he missed the challenges of the search and recruitment profession. He rejoined SMR Group in December of 2000.
