A business development and bid professional with over 35 years’ experience within the construction industry firstly in direct sales followed by 18 years in tender and proposal management, before returning to face to face client relationship.

Richard started his career over 35 years ago in material sales through specifying professionals and clients before moving on to a business development role with an SME contractor. He then spent 18 years working in bid management writing customer focussed proposals for several main contractors including seven years as a Bid Manager within Wates Property Services across planned and responsive social housing tenders as well as civic buildings and facilities management.

Early in 2022 an opportunity arose to take on a more customer-facing role working directly for the Regional Managing Director of South Responsive Maintenance so Richard has taken his in-depth knowledge of the market and in particular Wates approach to operations, social value, IT, sustainability, and market leading health & safety, to work with new and existing clients to align our offer to their unique requirements.
