I have a genuine passion for business. Having led teams all over the world, I place a high value on embracing cultural diversity and building businesses that benefit their local communities. I thrive on ESG’s complexities and supporting clients to achieve their ambitions.

Rich is an avid rugby league fan, and while his playing days are over he’s often on a touchline as a team first aider or watching his son play. He likes to spend as much of his free time as possible outdoors with his family, whether that’s at the rugby ground, in the garden or mountain biking.
