Richard Taite
Founder and CEO

Cliffside Malibu CEO and founder Richard Taite has lived in the Los Angeles area his entire life. He graduated from UCLA with a degree in Political Science with the idea of becoming a lawyer but instead, life and fate got in the way.After spending many years as an addict and alcoholic, and being in and out of various programs and sober living facilities, Richard achieved sobriety on March 3, 2003. Soon after, with the seed money he had from his own medical bill collections and medical-legal consulting company, Richard purchased a sprawling property in Malibu with breathtaking white water ocean views. As he continued to work on his recovery, he began to notice others relapsing. He found that there was a lack of exceptional resources for people needing aftercare for their continued sobriety. It didn’t take long before the desire emerged in him to create a dedicated sober living facility for men.
