Jude Richard

Vice President, West Gulf Coast Operations

Jude Richard's Biography

Jude Richard joined the Ardent team in 1982 as a salesman for the Lafayette, Louisiana operation. Through his sales efforts, the West Gulf Coast operation quickly grew to become one of the topmost producing districts in the company, and in 1985 Jude was promoted to the position of District Manager which he has held since that time. Under Jude's leadership, the Lafayette operation handles all of the offshore Gulf of Mexico work, including offshore maintenance and construction, along with new construction in fabrication yards along the Gulf coast. He is also currently managing the sales and operation efforts in the Eagle Ford Shale area of south Texas, and the Haynesville Shale area in North Louisiana.

Jude has a Bachelor of Arts degree in City and Regional Planning from the University of Louisiana in Lafayette. He is also very active in the community as both a board member and past president of the Bright Light Foundation, a charity that provides financial assistance to those families in the oilfield that have been stricken by catastrophic illnesses.
