Richardson serves as chair of the United Way of Tri-County board, and his firm has done pro bono work for a variety of area nonprofits. He also is the immediate past president of the Hopkinton Chamber of Commerce and recently has put an increased focus on climate issues, becoming a trained presenter for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project.
“He sets an example by his actions, not just by his words,” United Way of Tri-County president/CEO Paul Mina told the Worcester Business Journal for a March 2 article on Richardson’s induction. “It makes a big difference.”
