    Event Description:

    The McKinney Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present Keresa Richardson, CEO of the The Lawton Group as our next guest speaker for our popular CEO Breakfast Series.

    You don’t find too many women in the plumbing industry. But, Keresa Richardson believes that this trade definitely needs a woman’s touch. Keresa and her husband (J.R.) own several companies and are celebrating 36 years in business together. They were among the first “Pioneers” of the now nationwide franchise, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.  Keresa supported over 200 franchisees nationwide as the Brand President until she resigned April 2014. In addition to the BFP franchise they own and operate Lawton Group, a conglomerate of entities operating in Texas, Colorado and Minnesota.
    Keresa is a passionate about women in business. She believes in the power of quality service, customer satisfaction and the Golden Rule. Keresa is a native Texan a graduate of Texas A&M University and holds two master’s degrees. 
    In October of 2015 Keresa was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and after consulting with eleven oncologists she refused chemotherapy and fought this battle with alternative therapy and her faith in God. Now in remission this recent experience has opened up a new ministry to cancer patients trying to navigate our confusing medical system.
    Keresa and her husband JR have established missions work in South America along with many local charities. Keresa spends much of her time consulting with small business owners, serving in her local church, and is active in various community and political organizations. She recently co-authored a book entitled “Making a Difference” available on Amazon.com. She is the mother of 3 children, 6 grandchildren and 3 “grand dogs”.
