Embracing Growth and Change with Rick Barrett


About this episode

It takes a certain set of qualities and skills to grow in this rapidly changing treasury landscape. Rick Barrett, the Director of Treasury for Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, knows this all too well. He joins the Treasury Career Corner podcast to discuss how he grew as a treasury professional as the field has evolved. Rick also shares a few things treasury professionals should be aware of moving forward in a post-pandemic world. Rick’s current position has him overseeing worldwide treasury management, including foreign exchange risk management, global cash management and banking relationships, global credit card processing, accounts payable/receivable, and recognition process management functions. Prior to Rotary, Rick held positions in healthcare and a technology company and has experience in tax, treasury, insurance, receivables, and general accounting. Rotary is a global network of 1.4 million neighbours, friends, leaders and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
