After working in a variety of industries–including launching two start-ups–David Richman entered the financial industry as an advisor. Several years in, he found that his interests were more in managing people and businesses than in managing money. Over the next 15 years, he managed ever-larger businesses for the same Wall Street firm.
As a former sedentary, overweight smoker, David knew that he needed to focus not on what others wanted out of him but on what he wanted out of life. Through lessons learned in business and sport, David introduces the concept of the “middle of the pack” and discusses how to get more out of ourselves than ever imagined.
After losing his sister to brain cancer, David has organized a yearly fundraiser in her memory, the most recent being the impetus for his upcoming book, Cycle of Lives – 15 People’s Stories, 5,000 Miles, and a Journey Through the Emotional Chaos of Cancer.
Over the last 10 years, David has completed over 50 triathlons, including 15 Ironman-distance triathlons (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run), more than 50 runs longer than marathon distance, including several 24-hour runs, running 85 miles in Mexico in the heat of the summer, running 104 miles straight from Santa Barbara to Manhattan Beach, and most recently biking 4,700-miles in just six weeks as he met with the participants of his upcoming book exploring the emotional side of cancer.
David was born in Miami and raised mostly in the Los Angeles area. He and his wife split their time between homes in Southern California and Southern Nevada. He has worked in real estate, lending, and construction, started both an animation company and a skincare company, and then went into financial services. He has college-aged twins who are as aspirational as their father.
