BOB RITCHIE

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.

EDUCATION University of Evansville (BS)
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.
NEW HOBBY The pandemic has given me an opportunity to learn to cook! It beats UberEats!
WORRIES ABOUT The excoriating and man-made legal crisis in Florida is being allowed to continue due to the refusal of legislators to enact reform.
