Richard M. Crockett

President & CEO

Reared in a household in Mobile, Alabama that stressed higher education, hard work, and tenacity, the stage for success was set at an early age for Richard Crockett. After graduating from The Ohio State University, Mr. Crockett gained experience in retail, credit, and commercial lending in the banking industry and with the Ohio Department of Development. In 1991, Mr. Crockett started Capital Resource Group, an investment banking consulting company, targeted small businesses assisting in raising capital to grow their companies. He serves as the President of the Columbus Chapter of the Conference of Minority Transportation Officials (COMTO), where he was awarded the COMTO Historically Underserved Firm of the Year. He has also been recognized by E.E. Ward as the Entrepreneur of the Year in Metropolitan Columbus. Crockett attributes his success to the principles of hard work that were ingrained in him by his parents, as well as his life’s philosophy which is found in a quote by Henry David Thoreau. “If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live a life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.”
