Vista Q&A with Kevin Rice

What do you enjoy most about Vista?

Vista gives the opportunity for all of its employees own their job/career and allows for every person at Vista to be entrepreneurial. The leadership at Vista is both flexible and open minded for new ways of doing things as well as willing to give everyone the latitude to contribute however they think is best.

What do you love to do outside of work?

I love to Scuba Dive and travel. I’ve lived in multiple countries and love experiencing different cultures and seeing history throughout the world.

If you could play a character from a movie, who would it be?

Cobb from "Inception", one of the greatest movies ever.
