This month we honor Curt Richardson, an E-Myth Corporate Mastery™ client and owner of OtterBox, a Colorado-based company we've had the pleasure of working with for many years. With a growth rate of nearly 250% in 2010, and international expansion into Ireland, Dubai, Hong Kong and China, things just keep getting better for Otterbox. This award-winning company truly embraces the E-Myth and exemplifies an outstanding commitment to excellence in all that they do.

About the Business

Built upon fundamentals of hard work, innovation and perseverance, OtterBox is a leader in the production of premier protective solutions for global handheld manufacturers, wireless carriers and distributors. Incorporating creativity and cutting-edge design into every product, OtterBox creates sleek and durable cases that offer reliable device protection to complement any lifestyle.

There have been times where I’ve struggled as a business person because I was the one doing things. I was a technician, working in the business rather than on the business. I not only was a great firefighter, I was an even a better arsonist. By developing an understanding of E-Myth, OtterBox turned to the idea that systems run the company and people run the systems.
