"My course load included a heavy concentration in corporate
law, securities, commercial law and real estate," says Richter,
who also served as senior editor of the then-named University
of Pennsylvania Journal of International Business Law — a preview
of what was to come.
Inevitably, after a three-year stint practicing corporate law at
New York City law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP, Richter
came "home." In 1995 he joined Hill International as vice president
and general counsel. In 2001, he moved over to the operations
side of the company, taking over as president of Hill's Project
Management Group. In 2004, he was promoted to president and
COO. By the summer of 2006, he was helping ring the Nasdaq
opening bell after spearheading the company's effort to go public.
Hill, which had already managed over 1,000 projects valued at
more than $100 billion, was poised for even greater growth.
