Sport from the word go
Richard started out working in the sales team at a very successful premiership rugby club before working for a specialist sports hospitality company. His event roles have always stayed on the commercial side but its clear Richard’s passion lies with his clients and making sure they have the best possible experience at their events. Just like the rest of us here at Smart.
Events that have spanned the globe
As a massive sports fan he has been fortunate enough to experience events such as a British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa, the Hong Kong Rugby 7's, Wimbledon, Royal Ascot, Formula One and Open Golf. The list goes on and he realises what a lucky boy he is! Working for Smart now gives him the opportunity to work on a whole portfolio of different events. Only in his first week at Smart he experienced one of our live experiences at the Wireless Festival, Smart by Angela Hartnett at Wimbledon, a Facebook PR event at our Victoria Warehouse venue and the X Factor at Event City. The diversity of the Smart Group portfolio only means that Richard will experience many more unique event experiences.
A BBQ Champ
As a father to two young boys there is nothing Richard enjoys more then spending time with the family. Outside of that he loves sport (you would not have guessed would you?), and has a passion for music. Other passions include real ale, fine dining, the beach, Leicester City FC and Peppa Pig.
(He’s also told us he is pretty good on the BBQ; we are still trying to twist his arm into cooking us a Smart Group HQ BBQ...)
