PRESIDENT, AMERICAN INTEGRITY INSURANCE, TAMPA
Ritchie, whose ancestors arrived on the Mayflower, held leadership positions with several major insurance organizations before founding American Integrity, a homeowners insurance carrier, in 2006 following the 2004-05 hurricane seasons, which crippled the Florida property insurance market. The firm, which employs around 250, has grown to serve more than 300,000 customers in Florida.

|CIVIC EFFORT||We collected school supplies for the Backpacks of Hope program sponsored by Metropolitan Ministries and donated Legos to Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital to help children in the cancer ward with dexterity. In November, we donated over 7,000 pounds of food to Metropolitan Ministries to feed Tampa Bay families, which was a new record for us. Finally, in December we contributed gifts of toys and clothes to 12 families in need in support of the Joshua House and Children’s Home in Tampa. All of these drives were done while our employees were remote.|
