Rick Concepcion on handling business deals

Rick Concepcion (@ConcepcionRick) is a son of a typical politician father of the 1940-50’s. He wanted to be an agriculturist, but as usual, parents dictate what field to study so he went for law, banking and finance.

His good grades earned him the chance to study abroad. He finished his Bachelors Degree in Accountancy and Masters Degree in Business Administration (MBA) both at New Mexico State University.

After graduation as a U.S. citizen, he chose to have a work stint in Guam. He became friends with some agricultural scientists of the University of Guam Agricultural Experiment Station & Cooperative Extension Services.

He retired from his job at the Government of Guam and worked again in California and once more retired from the Superior Court of California.
