Meet The GO! Mobility Solutions Team
President & CEO
Motivated by a rebellious and adventurous spirit, Rick Goldstein moved to Arizona in 1976 after attending Cornell University in New York. A diving accident in the Tanque Verde Falls recreation area outside of Tucson in 1978 resulted in his quadriplegia and confinement to a wheelchair. But that was all he could be “confined” to. Following a year of physically and emotionally-grueling rehabilitation in New York City, Rick returned to Tucson in 1980 to prove to himself, and to others, that he would not have his goals or dreams thwarted by his disability. Over the course of the next twenty-plus years, he went on to build a successful real estate development and general contracting business, operate a property management firm and establish a telecommunications company. In 1998, Rick retired from the building trades to pursue a new career as a Day Trader in the equity markets. He obtained his securities license and, when not traveling his beloved Mexico, he continues to trade the markets. As a result of his travels, Rick realized that certain disability-travel-related devices were not available anywhere, including a lightweight, portable commode shower chair and a compact transfer board. To fill the void, Rick invented and patented inventions to meet the needs of disabled travelers and started GO! Mobility Solutions which is manufacturing them.

In 2012, Pete joined GO! where he educates its sales team how to educate the public about how GO!’s product line make the lives of the disabled easier.
