Richard was born in Georgia, where he lived for the first 8 years of his life. He also spent three years in South Carolina before moving to Tennessee, where he has lived for the last 24 years. Richard graduated from Mt. Juliet High School with Honors. After high school, he worked for several years remodeling, mostly doing hardwood and tile installation. Richard then attended Nashville Auto Diesel College, where he graduated in the top 10 of his class. Richard spent the next 10 years in the automotive industry, primarily as the Service Manager of a multi-million dollar Ford dealership here in Nashville. There Richard gained much of his knowledge and experience as a manager, dealing with day to day operations, providing quality work, and keeping customers informed. After much thought and soul searching, Richard decided to transition back into home construction and remodeling, and in 2013 joined The Tant Companies LLC. Richard brings years of management experience to The Tant Companies team, orchestrating our people and projects, and keeping open communication with our customers. Attention to detail and providing a quality product to our customers are of the utmost importance to Richard, which makes him the perfect man for the job.
Richard married his wife, Antonia, in June 2012 and has 3 step children. He and his wife hope to be graced with another child in the near future. He enjoys playing soccer several times a week, in local leagues. Also, Richard has a passion for drag racing and hopes to get back into it soon.
