Chuck Riechert my dear friend for the last 23 years and my West Coast Distributor passed away April 9th, 2012 due to complications from Asbestos exposure. Chuck and I talked every few days concerning Spa-Salon Manager projects, family and technology in general.
Chuck and I met after the earthquake in 1989 in California where he owned a salon in Mill Valley that was using the Salon Manager. After becoming my West Coast distributor, he successfully set up salons on the West Coast in California, Oregon and Washington. Chuck had quit doing customer support many years ago due to other health issues. In recent years, he became a mentor to me as he was always available to listen to my next ‘great’ idea. His greatest concern was always to keep it simple and make sure any enhancements benefited the customer.
Chuck will always be with me in my memory.
