His responsibilities continued to grow as he was in charge of NYLIC University, Agent and Management Development, all Cultural Markets, Woman's Market, Young Professionals and LGBT teams.  Rich was soon promoted to Senior Vice President which brought with it the responsibility of four Zone Vice Presidents.
