The oldest grandson in the business of the company’s founder Russ Kiko, Dick has been working full-time with the company since 2001. He received his Real Estate license in 2001 and In Auctioneers license in 2004. He is a member of the Ohio Association of Realtors, the National Association of Realtors, and the Stark County Association of Realtors, and is a member of the National and Ohio Association of Auctioneers, and many area Chamber of Commerce organizations. Dick is the Chief Executive Officer of KIKO Company, which owns and operates KIKO Auctioneers, KIKO Agency, and other companies. KIKO auctioneers execute over 1,200 auctions per year.
Dick specializes in selling commercial, industrial, and income-producing businesses. He is a well-recognized speaker on the topic of the Auction Method of Marketing and teaches continuing legal education classes to attorneys, bar associations, and other organizations throughout Ohio. His passion is to change the general public’s belief that auctions are only for dead and desperate sellers to the belief that auctions are the preferred method for converting assets into cash.

He and his wife, Maureen, are the parents of four, and in his spare time enjoys family activities and golf.
