This year marks Rick Maasâs 30th year working for Mead Lumber and he plans to go from full-time to staying on part-time.
âIâm kind of cutting back,â is how Rick phrased his semi-retirement. By this he means heâll be stepping down as manager and will refocus his time toward sales and working with contractors. He still plans to work an average of four days a week, down from seven, as was sometimes necessary in the past.
