Team Spotlight: Terri Rickard

Problem Solver. This innate quality is arguably what led Terri Rickard to start her company, Southwestern Travel Group, founded in 2016.

However, the seeds of Southwestern Travel Group were initially planted back in 2012, when Terri was working as Henry Bedford’s Executive Assistant. She took on a major project to create an internally-managed travel program for the (then) 16 operating divisions of Southwestern Family of Companies, managing over $5 million in annual travel spend. In just a few years of collecting travel data, conducting industry research, and perfecting the vendor contract negotiation process, Terri was able to achieve a savings of over $500,000.
