Richard E. Smith
Owner, RJ Smith Companies
Richard literally grew up on construction sites. His family has owned and operated a residential excavating business in Richmond, Virginia since the early ’70’s. From the playpen on the front porch of a home under construction while his parents worked, to operating 160 Excavators as a teenager to starting RJ Smith Construction in 1995. Richard continues to use his creativity and hard work ethic to grow his core site development operations. At the same time, he manages the company’s additional ancillary corporations.
Richard has a list of impressive achievements, but he’d be the last to share them with you. He’s remained focused and concerned about the needs of the staff and his clients, while his corporations have continued to grow.
He still drives a pickup truck and will be the first to grab a broom if he sees dirt from muddy boots on the corporate office floors. That’s what makes him special.
