The career of Dick DeVos has taken many twists and turns, but I believe this Grand Rapids, Michigan business leader has not missed any opportunities to become one of the top business and community experts in the U.S. I was shocked to read that Dick DeVos is the son of the founder of the AmWay group he served as President of from 1993 to 2002, but Dick set out to prove himself in many different arenas before returning to AmWay as President; amongst the ports of call for DeVos were the Orlando Magic NBA franchise he is still a member of the board of governors for. Since leaving AmWay I have followed the career of Dick DeVos avidly as he has set out to lead the Windquest Holdings group he has acted as President of since it was established; Windquest is a major part of the career of Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy who have looked to make investments in the areas they have interests in.
DeVos has spent much of his adult life looking to improve the educational options available to families across the U.S., which is why he remains a board member for the West Michigan Aviation Academy he and wife Betsy helped develop as a charter school. The chance to help young people explore their options for the future has seen Dick DeVos push forward the options offered by the Thunderbird School of Global Management; as a board member of the school Dick DeVos has embarked upon offering a scholarship to students from third world countries who wish to improve their chances of future business success through the education offered by the school.
I have also heard much about the love of aviation that led to Dick and Betsy DeVos forming the West Michigan Aviation Academy; DeVos is also a board member of the West Michigan Regional Air Alliance, a group I believe have performed many impressive feats over recent years. Dick DeVos and his fellow board members formed the Alliance in a bid to make sure the West Michigan region was served as well as possible by an improved level of air travel.
