Meet Our Team

Larry Richards, Owner/ CEO

Diving into the construction world back in 1995, Larry “Bubba” Richards began his journey building homes in Dallas, TX. Today, he proudly stands as the CEO and Owner of TRG Roofing and Decks. Beyond his professional accolades, Larry is a dedicated husband to Anna and a proud father. While much of his career has been rooted in the foundation and structural repair sector, an unexpected encounter with a black widow spider prompted a shift to roofing and exteriors. Ever since, he’s been on a mission to transform the perceptions of Middle Tennessee homeowners about roofing contractors.

Larry’s passion for his industry runs deep. He’s an active Professional Member of the American Policyholder Association, championing against insurance fraud. Additionally, he’s a valued Member of Roofers in Recovery and a respected public speaker, often sharing his insights and experiences with eager audiences.

Hailing from Goodrich, Michigan, Carlie has embraced the Donelson area of Nashville as her home for the past nine years. Transitioning from the property and casualty insurance sector, with a brief foray into property restoration, she has passionately devoted the last six years to the roofing industry. Her vast network and commitment to ensuring the TRG Roofing and Decks team, business partners, and their clients have the resources they need have solidified her as an invaluable asset to the group. Guided by her father’s wisdom that “It’s not what you know, but who you know,” she excels at forging and nurturing business relationships.

When not immersed in her professional endeavors, Carlie finds joy in the great outdoors. Whether teeing off on the golf course alongside her husband Ricky Sessum, cruising on Nashville’s scenic lakes, or exploring the city’s newest hotspots, she fully embodies the lively spirit of Nashville.
