Christopher Riggins is the President of Riggins Painting, established in 2009 in the Memphis Metro area. His first job out of high school was working with a local painting company learning the “ins” and “outs” of the industry. Christopher quickly excelled in the art of painting, furthering his career with the company, being promoted to foreman, project manager, and estimator for the company.
During the 2009 recession, the current business owner decided to close the doors. Christopher saw an opportunity to continue serving his customers and Riggins Painting was formed. His experience working the entire business as a painter, foreman, project manager, and estimator, makes Christopher uniquely qualified to ensure a quality experience from start to finish.
Christopher married his high school sweetheart Renee in 2004 and has five beautiful daughters, Ethny, Sabrina, Kaitlyn, Viviane, and Aubrey. He enjoys spending time with his family, fishing, playing volleyball, and softball.
Christopher’s burning desire is to create an atmosphere and culture within his company to bring glory to King Jesus, working diligently as unto God. He hopes that everyone who comes in contact with him or his company is encouraged to follow our one true Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
