After qualifying as a Chartered Certified Accountant, Richard moved into industry and held a number of finance positions over a nine year stretch with Coca-Cola in London. Nine years hard work warranted an 18 month career break which took him on travels to Central America, Malaysia, Thailand, Borneo, China, Burma, Australia and Fiji. He worked for O2 in Slough on returning before deciding to look for a fresh challenge in a smaller, friendlier but equally dynamic working environment. He arrived at Aardvark in December 2012.
When not working Richard attempts to emulate Bradley Wiggins on the bike and can also be found playing rugby at his local club.
