Having left the University of Edinburgh with a creditable but perhaps not vocational distinction in Religious Studies, Richard has spent over 20 years in the hospitality sector, enjoying leadership roles within a variety of multi-site, multi-brand, privately owned and Private Equity backed businesses. Specialising in cross-functional roles, ensuring a smooth and solid interface between both internal teams across Operations, Procurement, Marketing, Food & Beverage, Finance, Executive and Investor Boards and external suppliers, producers, consultants, aggregators and insight platforms, his passion for delivering solutions to complex challenges through people is what gets him out of bed in the morning.

The pandemic’s well-reported impact on hospitality has given him the perfect excuse to bring this experience and passion to bear elsewhere, joining the family business to bolster the team’s drive to help clients find and secure their longed-for homes from his base in Oxfordshire.
