Jeff Clayton, PT – CEO

Paul Riccio, VP of Sales and Marketing

Paul has a background in finance and sales operations, having worked as a financial advisor, sales trainer, and consultant before coming to CRS. Being familiar with the healthcare industry but frustrated with the culture and operations of many organizations, Paul sought a company with commitment to its employees and an operational model which enabled quality of care.
