Shareholder at Vedder Price, P.C.
“I worked with Rick (as outside legal counsel) for many years at his prior company. Rick is a hard-driving, results-oriented person who has the ability to stay focused on the prize and filter out the noise. I really enjoyed working with Rick and wish him the absolute best in his consulting role — which I have no doubt he will excel at.​​”


Managing Principal at Twinbrook Associates
“I was retained by Rick as a senior human resources consultant, and had the pleasure of working with him on the private equity acquisition and integration of two similar, but very different companies. They were similar, in that both enjoyed a high quality reputation within the industry, but very different with respect to geographic and leadership cultures. Rick quickly assessed the business challenge from all aspects, and gained the confidence of all employees. He then decisively launched a well thought out integration effort to define the new culture and integrate the technical, administrative, and go to market aspects of the organization. Rick is a knowledgable, capable and results oriented leader whom I look forward to working with again.”


Director of Marketing – Performance
“I have worked with Rick Trudo at SCT Performance for over 5 years. In those years I have watched him build a team and transform SCT from a small startup technology company into the industries largest manufacturer of vehicle performance programmers.

Rick’s background and experience in business & manufacturing is nothing short of spectacular. Every day he has taught me something new about business and about life. He is not only a wealth of information, he is willing to share his knowledge & experience with others to help them learn, grow & further themselves in business.”
