A Day in the Life of Rick Donovan: It’s Networking Morning, Noon and Night

As former salesman of the year Rick Donovan famously once said at Enoch Office Equipment, “It’s Networking Morning, Noon and Night.” President Joe Enoch and the entire Enoch team strongly believe in networking. So it is no surprise that Rick and several other Enoch employees can be seen running around town, attending various networking events throughout the week.

“My job is to get the word out about Enoch Office Equipment,” said Rick, who attends between one and three networking events EVERY DAY. Some groups are small, consisting of 5-10 members, while others boast more than 30 members. But, as Rick mentioned, each group, no matter the size, has the same theme: “How may I help you and your company?”

One of Rick’s networking groups, the Friday Pikesville Breakfast BNI Platinum Group, meets every Friday morning 7:30 – 9:00 at the Springhouse in Pikesville. This group of just around 30 members consistently generates $1 million in referrals each and every year. In 2012, the Rick and his fellow networkers generated more than $1,500,000 in referrals.


“That’s a lot for just a little networking group,” said Rick. “So far this year we have already turned in a half million dollars in referrals and only half the year is gone!”


“This is a strong group,” added Rick

Two more BNI members, Mary Cate Claudius and Ken Venick, can be seen speaking about their respective companies and what would be a good referral for them.



Remember the old adage “Givers Gain?” It is so true and self-explanatory. Networking works and Joe, Rick, and the rest of the Enoch family believe strongly in it.
