Now at the helm of Harcourt Collection, Rick is enthusiastic and eager to introduce his innovative and exciting new collections to the “Harcourt retail partners” across the company.

Presently, Judy is enthusiastic and motivated to join Rick in growing and expanding the new Harcourt Collection as well as the new 5 Star Binding company.
