Brian Richards has been serving as Snowflake Town Manager since May 2015; he began his career with the town in 1997 when he was hired as the town’s first finance director.

He grew up in Holbrook, graduating from Holbrook High School; he then attended Mesa Community College and Arizona State University, where he graduated with a degree in accounting, later becoming a Certified Public Accountant and then a Certified Public Finance Officer.

One of his favorite quotes is: “We all have challenges, there’s no changing that, but if you change the way you look at them, your trials become trails to growth.”
