Since graduating in 1994, Richard has been involved in the recruitment sector for the majority of his career specializing predominantly in the Financial Services industry across where he continues to place at Executive Committee level across Technology & Operations, Global Markets Sales, and Regional Heads of Fintech in the UK, Europe, and right across Asia.
Before founding Trevose Partners, Richard was responsible for building a multi-branded recruitment business in Hong Kong and Singapore for the FiveTen Group, where, having previously rebuilt the Melbourne business for Walker Hamill, he launched the subsequently re-branded WH Recruitment business in Asia, opening successful offices in both Hong Kong and Singapore over a three year period.
He was then actively involved in its subsequent trade sale to the Private Equity-backed FiveTen Group in 2006, and in 2011, established Trevose Partners in the UK and as the majority shareholder, is now responsible for the organic growth of the business both in the UK and overseas.
Outside work, Richard is lifelong Luton Town fan, and being married to an Aussie, he loves it when the Ashes comes around! On the odd occasion when he isn’t playing taxi driver to his two young daughters, he also loves a round of golf when he can fit it in!
