NGC is delighted to welcome veteran numismatist Rick
As a Senior Vice President and partner in the firm, Montgomery will be responsible for grading and authentication, two areas in which he enjoys a stellar reputation.
Montgomery joined NGC on Dec. 16, 2002. A numismatist of his caliber is rare, and he will be a major asset to NGC. The company is confident that his participation will only further solidify its position as the market leader in certified authentication and grading.
NGC Chairman and CEO Mark Salzberg is very pleased that Montgomery elected to join the company. "I've known and respected Rick for years," Salzberg stated. "He brings a wealth of talent in numismatics. NGC has aggressively pursued the leadership role that it currently enjoys, and Rick's involvement with NGC can only strengthen our organization in the eyes of the rare coin industry."
Montgomery has been a key figure in professional numismatics for many years. Most recently, he was employed by PCGS as its president.
Montgomery is also quite satisfied with his move: "I'm extremely excited about joining the many experts that make NGC the great company it is. NGC has defined itself as the recognized standard in numismatic certification for collectors and dealers, and I look forward to contributing to that continued success. With its talented core of experts in grading and numismatic attributions, I'm anxious to add to this dynamic force within the industry."
