A little about me

Jim Richardson worked for Crutchfield for a combined total of about 34 years before his retirement in 2021. He started in 1977 as Crutchfield's lucky seventh employee (or #007, as he put it), wearing many hats in different departments, including writing for the catalog.

Jim spent 10 years away from Crutchfield between 1983 and 1993, during which time he finished college and worked as a newspaper reporter and editor. He returned to the company just in time for our 1995 website launch, and helped pioneer early iterations of our online car-fit tools.

More recently, Jim worked as an editor for our home A/V and pro audio articles, where he made huge contributions to the way we present information to help you narrow down your choices and understand how to get the most out of your gear.
