OtterBox CEO Named 2010 Fort Collins Bravo! Entrepreneur

Yesterday evening, at a ceremony in Loveland, Colo., OtterBox™ founder and CEO, Curt Richardson was named as the 2010 Northern Colorado Business Report Bravo! Entrepreneur for Fort Collins, Colo.

The Bravo! Entrepreneur Award is presented by Northern Colorado Business Report in partnership with the chambers of commerce and economic-development agencies throughout the region and recognizes Northern Colorado entrepreneurs that have made their business dreams a reality. Bravo! honorees are individuals who use creativity and drive to construct a profitable business while giving back to the community.

“It is a significant compliment to be considered one of Northern Colorado’s Bravo! Entrepreneurs,” Richardson said. “However, I share this success with OtterBox employees, customers and supporters who have made the company what it is today.”

Throughout the years Richardson has experienced the true meaning of entrepreneurship, from his first molding apprenticeship at age 18 to his current role as the CEO of a burgeoning Colorado company, he has worked nearly every facet of his business. Today, OtterBox provides innovative cases for high-end mobile devices and is known globally as the quality leader.

“My role over the years has certainly changed from producing molds in my garage to heading up a growing company,” Richardson said. “OtterBox is succeeding on all fronts and it’s amazing to see our culture thrive. The biggest reward by far is watching employees grow to fulfill their dreams.”
