In July 1999, Rikard came to PBEC (where I worked from October 1998 to February 2003). He joined Tony as one of the invaluable assistants to Lacene.

He is a warm, charming gentleman with a Latin-slash-European accent even he finds difficult to describe. Prior to coming to Hawaii to attend school, Rikard worked in sales and marketing in Brazil.

He grew up in Sweden, and speaks Swedish, Portuguese and Spanish, in addition to English. Although he and David share a passion for 80s heavy metal music, Rikard's hidden talents as a singer come out with love ballads during karaoke outings.

He graduated from Hawaii Pacific University in May 2000 with a Bachelor's degree in Business Economics. He left our office that summer, and after some traveling, landed a gig as an international recruiter for HPU.

He left Hawaii in August 2001 to pursue an MBA at Thunderbird.


In a small but neat coincidence, Rikard lives in the same Waikiki apartment building Jen and I lived in years ago. If we hadn't moved to Makiki, we would have been next door neighbors.


Rikard's birthday is September 23.
