Richard Fairbanks

Dick joined Buschle + Fairbanks as a staff accountant in 1988. Over the years Dick has assisted existing clients with their accounting processes and new clients have become long time clients. Never one to be satisfied with average, Dick’s creativity and problem solving continually give clients the extra something to help them succeed. Since taking over as principal in the firm 5 years ago, Dick has steered the company into the future with humor and continued hard work. When he has spare time, Dick enjoys working outdoors, building furniture (ask him to show you the desk in his office), occasional golf and traveling anywhere there is a place to hike. He has been a volunteer at Christ the King parish for many years and serves as a member on the Grievance Committee of the Cincinnati Bar Association. Dick graduated from Miami University with a B.S. in Accounting.
