EDUCATION University of Evansville (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING My ancestors immigrated from Scotland and came to America on the Mayflower.
FLORIDA ISSUE Every citizen, visitor and business in this state has a vested interest in environmental sustainability, which has a direct impact on insurance and insurance rates.
ALTERNATE CAREER? I’d be leading a company dedicated to mentoring and developing future leaders.
PHILANTHROPIC PASSION After the death of our son Jason, my wife and I founded the Jason Ritchie Hockey Foundation. Through the work of the organization, we are able to serve student athletes, assisting them to discover and reach their potential. Since its inception in 2009, we have awarded 11 scholarships and helped numerous kids with our annual free baseball and hockey clinics.
STAYING FIT I work out with a personal trainer twice a week. I stick to a low-carb diet, and I meditate every day.
