Richard has been involved in Habitat for Humanity as a volunteer and board member since 2006. He joined the Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors as Treasurer in 2006 and was President from 2010 thru 2012 during the devastating EF5 tornado. Habitat immediately went to work and built 10 homes in 10 days to begin a process of getting new homes for displaced families. This initiated a process of constructing 15 to 20 homes annually for partner families which continues today. Richard is passionate about Habitat for Humanity and is excited for the opportunity to bring his talents and experience to Northwest Arkansas.
He and his wife Julie of 22 years have two children and three wonderful grandchildren. Richard has been in banking over 20 years and is the Vice President of Commercial Banking at Regions Bank in NWA.
