About Tony 4

Seattle, WA USA

Bio: Anthony M. Ridnell was born in New York City on January 1, 1961 and grew up in Bronxville, New York and Sydney, Australia. He graduated a 2nd Lieutenant in 1982 from the United States Military Academy, West Point, New York. Having served as a Field Artillery Battery Commander from 1986-88, Anthony decided to leave the army and pursue a rugby career and an opportunity in the chemical business. His rugby career flourished and he was fortunate to represent the USA Eagles (USA National Team) in three separate Rugby World Cup events (1987, 1991, 1993) and is one of only three people to have represented the USA in three such events. Anthony M. Ridnell founded TRInternational, Inc. (TRI) in 1994 and currently sits on the Board of Directors, National Association of Chemical Distributors (2000 - Present) and the Board of Advisors, Seattle University Albers School of Business. (2006 - Present). TRI conducts over $70 Million in sales, 30 employees, 4 regional offices in the USA, our Global Trade headquarters in Dubai UAE, a two person office in Shanghai, China and a sourcing office in New Delhi, India. A new addition in 2012 was our Calgary, AB office servicing the Canadian oil sands industry. TRI’s employees take pride in their reputation and commitment to the company and the Chemical Industry. TRI ranks in the Top 60 on the list of the Nation’s Top 100 Chemical Distributors, and has three times received recognition as one of the fastest growing privately held businesses in Washington State (2004, 2008, 2010). He lives on a small family farm in Issaquah, WA (www.foxhollowfamilyfarm.com) with his wife, Autumn, and three beautiful daughters (Kyra, Maddy, and Gabby) and his son, Harrison, where they tend to a variety of farm animals including many horses, peacocks, chickens, pigs, cats and numerous animals.

  1. Hi Tony, Your story is an inspiration to me, as a small chemical distributor I would like to aspire to a fraction of what you have achieved! Congratulations and I would love to work with you in someway!!

  2. Hi admin do you need unlimited content for your page ? What if you could copy post from other sites, make it

  3. TR: Would love to hear your view on the part the event owners, not USA Rugby, did or should play in securing national coverage and buliding strategic partnerships that benefit the development of Rugby at the grass roots levels. This tournament is a for profit business. As long as the fan base and ticket sales continue to grow there is no need for them to actively partner with RIM, step out of their comfort zones, innovate and take risks.
