LJ Richardson Tire Guys

LJ Richardson

My wife Melissa and I have been married since 1999 and we have 3 children; Taylor, Gannon, & Madden. I enjoy spending time with my family and I love hunting, particularly bow hunting. I tend to find a way to get out any time I can.

I started working in the tire industry at 17 years old, without any idea how tires would become an intricate part of my livelihood. After 16 years working at the nation’s largest independent tire company, I ventured away for a bit. I spent time in the golf apparel business and most recently, traveling the country and working in the non-ferrous foundry world. I was able to take the customer service experience from all my previous jobs and build upon that, creating meaningful relationships every step along the way. After some discussion with the team in Tennessee, I certainly felt the calling to get back into the tire-oriented customer service field.

I’m beyond thrilled to partner with so many amazing people at Freedom Tire Guys, both in AZ and TN. We all have the same goal in mind; To be the very best in the industry.
