Owner, Rick’s Cleaners

CHICAGO — In this latest installment of Off the Cuff, where readers can meet and learn more about someone from the fabricare industry, let's get to know Ian Noble, Owner, Rick’s Cleaners.

Tell us where you were born, grew up, and reside today?

“Born, raised, and reside in Austin, Texas.”

Hobbies (that you’ll admit to)?

“Travel, running, scuba, photography.”

What gets you excited at work?

“Seeing my team take charge and make great, and smart, decisions. I used to have to control everything 100%. But that is not the case anymore. I’m very fortunate to have a strong support group and upper management that is top notch. Also I like to turn small changes into big savings.”

“My secret is that I’m extremely frugal. I rarely go out to eat, cook a lot to save money, and always bring my lunch to work.”
