Nick Rifken is the Executive Assistant to The Energy Project’s CEO, Tony Schwartz. He finds joy in the ever-changing daily demands and the opportunity to regularly engage with both clients and staff of The Energy Project.
Prior to joining The Energy Project, Nick worked as an administrator in both the non-profit and healthcare sectors, and in various roles within the performing arts; interacting with directors, community leaders, and world-class musicians.
Fueling his passion for music, Nick performs drums and co-runs a pop-dance entertainment band “Lion + Tiger” in the tristate area and is pursuing an MBA at William Paterson University. Nick earned a bachelor’s of Music in Percussion Performance from the University of Michigan.
I joined The Energy Project because I recognized the opportunity to pursue a meaningful career and quality of life that would allow me to leave a positive impact beyond my own scope of influence through the work, collaboration, and vision of an amazing team and the thoughtful leadership of Tony Schwartz.
