Todd Richter
From his undergrad to graduate school, Todd Richter is a very proud alum who stays close to the schools that shaped his adulthood.

Richter attended the College of William & Mary for his undergraduate studies, graduating in 1979 with a degree in finance. Since that time, he’s remained connected to the Virginia school, especially its golf program which Richter attributes for much of his achievements. “I attribute a lot of my business career success to the discipline I developed as a student at William & Mary,” he said, giving direct praise to his golf instructor, Coach Joe Agee. Richter continues to engage with students in the classroom and on the golf course, both in Virginia and in New York where he resides. He enjoys providing them with the confidence, encouragement and knowledge that he received in order to make them as successful in their studies and into the future.

Todd Richter also remains a fervent supporter of his graduate school. In 1981, he graduated from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University with his MBA in finance. Since then, Richter has had a significantly successful career -- a career that has led him to recently create a $5 million estate commitment to the Todd B. Richter Fund, which benefits five endowments specific to the Kelley School’s financial department. Richter’s fund is just the latest support following many years of service to recruitment and membership upon organizations that include the Kelley Alumni Association’s Metropolitan New York chapter and the Kelley School Dean’s Council.

Following a very successful career spanning three decades, Todd Richter wants to share his financial gains with others. Richter is currently the managing director for Bank of America’s global healthcare investment group. This job began in 1999 after 18 years of dedication working with Morgan Stanley.

Now that he has worked for more than 30 years and become one of the leading analysts in the healthcare industry, Richter has chosen to give back to the educational institutions that built him into the businessperson that he is today. Those academic places are the College of William & Mary, where he earned his undergraduate degree in 1979, and the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, from which he earned an Masters in Business Administration in 1981. To each, Richter donated $5 million, for a total of $10 million. This created an endowment at each school for other students and faculty to benefit from in their endeavors. This sizable contribution -- a lasting legacy beyond his constant donations of time, leadership and mentorship -- to each university will allow for others to grow in their successes just as Todd Richter did in the previous 30 years.

Colleges across the nation beckon prospective athletes to attend their schools, and often, it’s the college who gains a lot through its sports programs. But student-athletes can also gain just as much if not more. Todd Richter is proof of that. As a student at the College of William & Mary in Virginia, his presence on the golf team went way beyond long drives and excellent putts. It taught him lessons on the golf course that he’d apply to his life and his 40-year career in finance.

Richter is a 1979 graduate of William & Mary. During his years at the school, he was part of the golf team under the tutelage of legendary coach Joe Agee, an emeritus professor of kinesiology as well as a former Marine colonel. And while Agee taught Richter the necessities for a good golf game, he also imparted much more. Said Richter recently, “I attribute a lot of my business career success to the discipline I developed as a student and as a golfer at William & Mary. Joe had -- and still has -- an enormous influence on my life, as does golf in general.”

Todd Richter said that he learned discipline from Agee, which is necessary in any successful career. He also realized the importance of a competitive edge -- a tool that is essential in business. Added Richter, who recently provided a $5 million estate commitment to the school’s golf program for men and women, “All students go to the College to get a world-class education; we’re all there because it’s a world-class academic institution. Those who are fortunate enough to participate in an athletic program learn very quickly that it is a very special place to be a student-athlete.”
