Richard Wira

Managing Director

For more than 40 years, Richard Wira has seen the life insurance business from all angles.

Richard worked the sales side of life insurance as an agent, a General Agent and IMO. He’s seen the home office side of it as a Regional VP of Sales and Marketing. In 1999, forecasting the impending internet boom, Richard founded his own company, EQUOTE, to help automate the insurance application process without the need for agent involvement. EQUOTE has been profitable every year since without any investors or shareholders.

Before the life insurance industry, Richard was an Operations Specialist and Anti-Submarine Controller in the Navy. His time serving our country included three tours in Vietnam where he earned the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry with Oak Leaf Cluster, Presidential Unit Citation and a Purple Heart.  

Today, Richard brings his decades of experience and wealth knowledge to Cool Springs Financial and our clients, and we’re better for it.
