Rick Banks — Controller/Director of Internal Operations

Rick is a 1976 graduate of Penn State University with a degree in Business Administration with a major in Accounting. After graduation he worked with Arthur Andersen & Co. in Washington DC for four years. Following an eight-year stint with Piper Aircraft Corp. in Vero Beach, Florida, Rick and his family relocated to Bellefonte in 1987, where he went to work as Vice President of Finance with Bellefonte Lime Company before joining the APS in July 2004 as Controller/Director of Internal Operations.

“As Controller, I direct all the activities of the accounting department (i.e., revenue receipt, accounts payable, payroll, general ledger, financial reporting, interface with auditors, etc.) As Director of Internal Operations, I am responsible for the maintenance of the Match Factory Complex, tenant relations, serve as APS/APRL personnel director, and handle other building and staff-related matters."

“Joining the APS staff in 2004 has been a real pleasure. I love the people that I work with every day and truly enjoy the work. Also, being a part of the continuing renovation of the Match Factory Complex has been very exciting. The APS is, without a doubt, a fantastic place to work.”

Rick, along with his sons, is an avid Alabama Crimson Tide fan and for the past twenty-five years has made an annual pilgrimage to Tuscaloosa to take in a football game. But one of his greatest thrills was coaching his son’s high school varsity basketball team. Rick enjoys being very involved in his local church as a vocal soloist, member of the praise & worship team, and serving on the Elder Board. Rick and his wife Cheri enjoy traveling to visit their three sons who now reside in North Carolina, Texas, and Pennsylvania.
