Richard joined Bisley in April 2019, but has been a long-standing friend of the company, previously providing Bisley with expert consultation and support. His career has involved a number of high profile, senior roles. Initially appointed as the Sales Director of Banner Business Services, Richard became Managing Director in 2009. The business merged in 2014, and Richard remained MD, successfully managing the integration with 100% contract retention. Richard was also Managing Director for Vow Retail until he left the business in 2017 to set up his own successful consultancy. His demonstrable track record includes personally leading the bid, tender and negotiation to secure the largest offices supplies contract ever awarded in the UK, which was four years later retained for a further term. His long-standing network operates at the highest level in the government and corporate sector procurement. Since joining Bisley, Richard has been working alongside the Corporate and Public Sector teams to establish detailed business processes to support Bisley’s growing sales channels.
