Richard J. Bryan
At age 28, Richard J. Bryan took the reins of an $120 million family business when his father was forced to retire due to illness. That alone was a challenge. Worse, the business was losing $3.5 million a year. In his 10 years as CEO, Richard’s leadership style matured from a controlling, hands-on manager to a true leader. Richard applied creative strategies to articulate a crystal-clear vision, hire the right people, forge a dynamic team, and build a thriving, profitable business.
