Throughout the time that Richard and I have worked together, he has shown himself to be a highly knowledgeable, competent and professional HR director. Richard and his team provided invaluable support to me on a number of projects including a global restructuring of the IT department shortly after I joined in 2012. We have since collaborated on deployment of a range of new global HR systems, processes and initiatives and then more recently on the integration of Synergy Health into STERIS. Richard has a very engaging style, is always approachable and people-focused. The emphasis on celebrating success and reward and recognition, that are Richard’s legacy, are very highly valued by people in my team and across the business today. I have no hesitation in recommending Richard and would welcome the opportunity to work together again in the future.
