Richard studied mechanical engineering at Edinburgh University and has spent most of his career working in commercial roles in large and small manufacturing businesses. He also holds an Executive MBA from London Business School.
He has spent the last decade working with engineering start-ups, helping them to commercialise their technologies. In 2020, Richard set up an investment company called Clean Engineering and its first investment was as the seed investor in Salinity Solutions when Tim Naughton led the spin-out from the University of Birmingham.
Richard is now full time CEO of Salinity and is extremely proud of the progress the team has made taking an engineering technology from university research project into production in just two years.
