Richard's varied career path has seen him graduate from the workshop onto the sales floor in the North East of England, then through Sales management to General Management. He spent considerable time abroad as a Sales and Marketing Manager for a car importer in the Middle East, and then as an area manager in Eastern Europe. Consequently his grasp of the requirements for business is enhanced by having experience of different markets and cultures, both as retailer and importer, in aftersales and sales.
His spare time is taken up riding anything with two wheels, often with Lesley on the back. He once spent 3 weeks travelling the USA from coast to coast on a Harley Davidson. Starting to show his age!
