Richard H. Paradis

Founder (Retired)

Rich Paradis started R.H. Paradis & Associates in 1981 chasing his dream for building a comprehensive financial planning firm that listens to the needs and concerns of clients and delivers the most current products and solutions. Rich's family, also believing in the dream, joined in to make it happen. His wife Jane joined him in 1983 as office manager. His son Steve joined the firm in 1990 to help grow the business. Rich's focus has been on the investment side of the firm while Steve has focused primarily on the insurance needs of their clients. Their hard work has resulted in over 7,000 households up and down the front range of Colorado being provided with financial security, insurance and a friend for life.

The firm has historically had a strong business relationship with the Hartford Life Insurance Company. Rich served on the Hartford Leadership Council from 1995 to 2006 which was responsible for product development and improving communication between the field and the home office.

He has been recognized as a member of Hartford's Captain's Club for producing over $1 million in premium in 1999, 2007 and 2013. R.H. Paradis and Associates was recognized by Hartford in 2002 as the top outstanding agency of the Hartford network.

Now retired, Rich was an active member of the Board of Directors for his church. He continues to enjoy exploring the country with his wife, Jane in their RV.
