Tom Richard's photoThomas Richards is the Chief Executive Officer of Triquetra Technologies, Inc. (T2). Mr. Richards oversees the company's strategic planning, business management, contract administration, and provides a full spectrum of oversight to all T2 business areas.

Mr. Richards brings worldwide operational perspective to T2, gained in the Pacific, Central America, and Middle East during assignments as an RF-4 crewmember, with the Army as a Brigade Air Liaison Officer (BALO), and in various command and control (C2) capacities in the Air and Space Operations Center (AOC). He is no stranger to the staff, having served in Major Command and Headquarters Air Force capacities during his 22 year military career.

After retiring from the Air Force, Mr. Richards transitioned his military experience to the civilian sector in CollaborX, a 100+ employee defense contracting company, where he developed two new lines of businesses before taking an executive level position with Teledyne. After several years, he left Teledyne and co-founded T2 with his wife Terri. As T2 experienced tremendous growth in advisory and assistance service contracts, Mr. Richards enlisted his Chief Operating Officer to develop an industry leading, DoD focused Knowledge Management (KM) curriculum. Mr. Richards is currently coordinating the efforts of his staff to bring this KM training program to market.
