In the fourth episode of You Leading You, we speak with Bob Ritter, the president of the First Direct Corporation, an award winning sales and service solutions provider. Bob is a true entrepreneur whose experience as a realtor, teacher, and business owner has created an organization alongside his wife Mary that has impacted companies such as Minolta, Columbia University, NY State Police and Harlem Wizards Entertainment Basketball Inc., just to name a very few. Bob is a dynamic and always pivoting leader who I truly admire due to his passion for both his personal and professional ventures.
