James Richie

Co-Founder & Managing Director

Mr. James Richie

Mr. Richie is a 26 year veteran of international business, serving as a senior telecom executive in the wireless cellular telephone industry. His career began back in the late 1980‘s with a small wireless startup in Chicago. He helped drive growth of the division from only three engineers to a global leader in test and measurement systems for the telecom industry. The group was eventually acquired by Agilent Technologies for a large undisclosed sum. Agilent is one of the largest medical equipment manufacturers globally.

In the mid 1990s, Mr. Richie became President, and later CEO of X-TEL Communications, Inc. Again, taking the business from a startup to a multinational leader in telecom test and measurement equipment for the wireless industry. At 53, he maintains a metabolic age in his 30s. Mr. Richie now seeks to do the same in Anti-Aging Medicine that he did in telecom, and hopes to do what he can to bring the benefits of Age Management medicine to a larger group of aging baby-boomers looking to live younger longer. In doing so, he intends to make his mark by promoting the Anti-Age lifestyle, ultimately leading to a healthier and more prosperous world.
