Richard Bishop is Vice-Chair of the IONS Board of Directors.
Richard is a financial executive and organizational consultant who works with businesses and nonprofit enterprises undergoing dramatic change, whether brought about by success, far-reaching goals, adversity or market changes. One area of specialization is working with entrepreneurs and other people of vision and drive, whose creative talents and outreaching ambitions need to be balanced with systematic planning and sound management practices in order to build the necessary organizational infrastructure and management team to transform those visionary goals into sustainable reality. He holds an MBA from Stanford University and is a CPA. Additionally, and in quite a contrast from his business career, he privately instructs spiritual seekers in radical awakening.
