Christina Ricke, Principal, Pinion, LLC

As Pinion’s people strategy leader, Christina Ricke creates a legacy of talent. She champions change in the areas of recruiting, retention, employee relations, talent development, and human resource consulting.

Christina discovers people’s distinct abilities–what a person is best at and loves to do–leveraging one-of-a-kind systems the firm has built and employing tools and resources such as KOLBE and DISC. Then, she helps each person harness his or her passion to boost their career and the firm’s results.

In Pinion’s brick and mortar and virtual offices from coast to coast, Christina fosters a firm culture of entrepreneurship, continual improvement, and creative destruction that breeds out-of-the-box ideas, innovation, and forward progress.

Originally from an ag community in rural southwestern Kansas, she grew up family farming and custom harvesting. To this day, she lives with farmer’s values and loves her continuing involvement with the food and ag industry.

Christina Ricke joined Pinion 20 years ago, and eventually led the firm’s community banking practice. She performed tax work, strategic planning, and business development building the firm’s bank-industry presence in the Kansas, Oklahoma and Colorado markets.

But devoted to people issues throughout her career, she became increasingly driven to transition to a role where she now creates career opportunities for the firm’s team members. As a member of the firm’s leadership team, she focuses on understanding the exclusive personality traits that enable each unique team member to flourish. And she continually builds and supports the kind of environment that makes it enjoyable for people to stay and grow as satisfied professionals who continually expand their talents.
