Growing up in a household with a solid religious background influenced Richard Farr to bring the reality, positivity, and morality of his faith to a career based on Christian principles. He felt there was a place for lay ministry in the business world and has inculcated this belief as the founder, chairman, and chief executive of his firm, Farr Investments, since 1980. Before that, he adhered to this fundamental philosophy while bringing his skills and expertise to senior executive positions at Crown Zellerbach Corporation; Heublein, Incorporated; Lehman Brothers, Inc.; Continental Grain Company; and Procter & Gamble. He prepared for this career by earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy and religion at Hendrix College in 1952. Despite not having a master’s degree, he was hired directly out of college by Procter & Gamble and flourished during his time here. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes Magazine, and Fortune Magazine have all recognized Mr. Farr. In 2019, he was honored with a Marquis Who’s Who Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award.
