Raised in the beautiful village of Truchas, New Mexico, Richard is one of 10 children born to Albert and Cordelia Cordova. At a very early age, he was taught the values of hard work instilled by his parents. After graduating from Santa Cruz High, Richard completed a 4-year Carpenters Apprenticeship, and soon earned his position as one of the youngest project superintendents in the state of New Mexico—working for a large reputable construction firm. In 1987 Richard set out on his own and established Blue Sky Builders, Inc.
With over 40 years experience in the construction industry—Richard has a vast knowledge of construction practices, and shares his expertise with not only his staff, but all his subcontractors, working on his projects. Maintaining the reputation he has earned since establishing his own company is important to Richard, and the relationships he develops with his employees and subcontractors inspires them to reach the high standards that he expects from them—in this competitive industry. Richard lives in Alcalde, New Mexico with his wife Diahann.
