JB Richardson’s entrepreneurial journey began with a deep passion for finance and operations, coupled with a visionary mindset that propelled him to take on leadership roles and make impactful contributions. He joined CCIG in 2020 with a clear vision and determination to elevate the organization to new heights.

“Drawing upon his extensive experience in private equity, he navigated challenges with resilience and strategic acumen,” said his colleagues. “JB played a pivotal role in scaling CCIG’s operations, making significant investments to bring the resources and market access of national and global brokerages to the Texas and Colorado marketplaces, laying the foundation for double-digit revenue growth and success in recent years.”

According to Richardson, the journey that led him to his current role has been one filled with embracing challenges as a way to make an impact. “The ability to adapt and innovate has been instrumental in navigating the dynamic landscape of the insurance industry,” he said. “I would encourage my younger self to foster a mindset of continuous learning, leverage mentorship opportunities and stay true to the values that define success; every setback is a chance to learn, and resilience coupled with a forward-thinking approach can turn any challenge into a stepping stone toward achievement.”
