Rich Kozlow serves as the Chair of the Board of Directors. He recently served as the interim CEO and President of NW Works.
With a career spanning 35 years in international business and finance, Rich is proud to lend his operational experience and passion for people to NW Works as the Chair of the Board. Much of his current leadership skills come from over 20 years in the Boy Scouts of America organization, which also taught him teamwork and compassion for individual differences in people. Global business opportunities allowed Rich to witness and respect the human condition all over the world. Rich has managed many different people from different backgrounds and believes that inclusivity is vital to the success of communities.
Rich was invited to serve on the NW Works Board and quickly found himself immersed in a company that was unlike any he had experienced before. The commitment of service from the employees, the community engagement with clients, and the dedication to workforce development for individuals with disabilities are aspects of the mission that Rich is the most passionate about. “We can help people and allow them to realize their dreams. These individuals are the most vulnerable members of society, and it feels amazing to contribute to their success.”
