Richard has been with IMSM since its infancy. Originally a lawyer, he has always had an interest in what makes a company tick so the opportunity to work with such a variety of businesses through ISO certification couldn’t be better.
Richard started the US operations a couple of years after joining IMSM and now has a client base that extends throughout North America, Europe and Asia, ranging from small independent manufacturers to major corporations, and data security companies that contract to UK and USA Government departments. Richard has seen IMSM grow over the years which gives him an invaluable and detailed insight into the process a company needs to go through to gain certification. He spends ten days a month in the US working with clients around Virginia, Maryland and DC and the rest his time is spent in the UK.
Whilst not consulting with potential clients or rushing in and out of airports, you will find Richard at his home in the Midlands with his sheep, chickens and geese.
