Bryan Richey is a military veteran who is dedicated to protecting our veterans here in Blount County. During his service in the Navy, Richey served honorably aboard the USS-Gettysburg and was part of a record-setting narcotics operation with a focus on keeping drugs from entering our country. After his service in the military, Richey became a financial advisor with MetLife, where he saw first-hand the importance of a good financial strategy. Richey eventually opened an independent insurance agency, offering both auto and homeowners insurance to his clients. In 2017, Richey fulfilled a long-term promise he once made to his wife and best friend, Mindy Richey, when he moved his family to Maryville, Tennessee. “It was the beauty of the mountains and the peaceful atmosphere of this area that made us want to move our family here. I told my wife way back in 2003 that someday we would root our lives here in this great community,” said Richey. Since their move to the area, the Richey family has quickly started to grow those roots in the area. Bryan Richey’s sixteen-year-old son Clayton is currently attending Maryville High school, and eight-year-old daughter Paisley is attending Montgomery Ridge Intermediate School.
Now, with his sights set on continuing his service to his country and our community on Capitol Hill in Nashville, Bryan Richey plans to employ the very same principles of honor, courage, and commitment that he once vowed when defending our country in being the new voice of Blount County.
