Ada/Canyon Co., Idaho
Since 2005, Richard Wambolt has served as a courier in Ada and Canyon Counties for Alliance Title & Escrow Corp. Up to three times a day you can find Richard picking up and delivering packages and mail to Alliance Title’s downtown and Parkcenter locations in Boise as well as the Eagle, Meridian and Nampa branches. In his own words, his job is “going places!” Richard’s friendliness is infectious and his happy attitude is much anticipated and welcomed by the staff of the branches he serves.
Prior to joining the Alliance Title team, Richard had formally retired from a thriving 35+ year career in the communications industry. Finding that retirement gave him too much free time, he listed himself with a staffing agency, and before long, he was offered a temporary position as a courier for Alliance Title and eventually became a permanent employee with the organization.
Richard has also had the privilege of serving in the military where he provided in-flight refueling of B52 bombers, amongst other tasks. He is proud of his service to his country in Southeast Asia, Thailand and Minot, North Dakota. His military service and love for his country may be why when asked who he admires most, he replied, “Our 32nd President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. He kept us out of World War II (until Pearl Harbor), and brought us out of the Depression with the New Deal. He did all this despite his paralysis and was elected 3 terms over.”
When asked what he enjoys most about his work at Alliance Title, Richard says, “My coworkers are the greatest and I enjoy being able to visit with them daily.” As for his favorite Alliance Title core value, he says, “That’s a tough one… I like them all, you need them all. But if I absolutely had to pick, it would be teamwork.”
Outside of work, Richard likes to work on home improvement projects. From flooring to molding, he considers himself a ‘jack of all trades’ and welcomes having a ‘honey do’ list.
Richard truly loves to help others and that is evidenced by his exceptional service at Alliance Title. He brightens the day of everyone he comes into contact with and he exemplifies his favorite quote/saying, “Do unto others as you’d want done unto you.”
