Achievements:
Key player in Harley-Davidson resurrection after AMF ownership.


As chief financial officer and treasurer, Rich Teerlink successfully returned Harley-Davidson to public ownership, raising 70 million dollars in capital in the process. With Citicorp foreclosing on its loans, Harley-Davidson might have gone bankrupt without Teerlink's tenacious attention to financial restructuring.
