Richard Charles Yancey, a Retired Investment Banker at Dillon, Read & Co., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of investment banking.

Mr. Yancey served in the U.S. Reserve Officers’ Training Corps from 1944 to 1946 and thought banking would be a good field to go into after service because he wanted to provide financing to companies in the United States and abroad.

He went on to earn a Master of Business Administration, with distinction, at Harvard University in 1952. Jumping right into his professional career after college, Mr. Yancey worked as an associate for Dillon, Read & Co., in New York City, New York, from 1952 to 1963. He remained with the company for the entirety of his career and moved up the ranks from a vice president, to the managing director, to the director, to a senior advisor between 1963 and 1992, when he retired.

In addition to his immediate professional achievements, Mr. Yancey served as a senior advisor for Ad Media Partners, Inc., a chairman, and director for the Czech and Slovak American Enterprise Fund, and had a business partnership with Board Whittle Communications L.P. In recognition of his service to his country, he received the President’s USA Freedom Corps Call to Service Award from the United States Agency for International Development in 2006. Mr. Yancey contributes his free time to the Harvard Club of New York City and the Pilgrims of the United States.
