Rick Farrell | Vice President - A+D Sales Rep in Dallas Market | Woodwright

About Rick

Rick’s lifelong passion for the wood industry brought him to the Woodwright team in 2006. Today, Rick is Vice President of Business Development, the Dallas Market A+D Consultant and he trains and mentors our growing sales team as Sales Manager.

Rick also wears the hat of Woodwright’s Sustainability Leader, where he has been instrumental in expanding our Sustainable Initiatives critical to the commercial construction industry. First, obtaining our company’s FSC & FloorScore certifications and recently adding an HPD (Health Product Declaration) to the majority of the custom finished products that Woodwright manufactures.

Rick is a respected Wood Specialist with extensive knowledge of hardwood flooring, lumber, plywood, veneers, etc. and actively involved in IIDA, USGBC and the NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association).

When Rick is not collaborating with his clients to bring their visions to life, you can find him in his workshop (shocker), fishing for that elusive BIG ONE or creating memories with his family.

“Abundant to all the needs of man, how poor the world would be without wood.”  – Everard Hinrichs

About Cody

I joined the Woodwright Team at the start of 2023 as an Estimator. I graduated from Collin College with an associate of science and came with a background in Remodeling, Construction, Finish Coatings, and Estimating. I’m a native Texan and always will be. I spend my spare time in East Texas fishing (for fun or in tournaments), hunting, and enjoying time with my family. I was very excited to join the Woodwright and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect fit.
