Having progressed through the business from his initial position as Business Analyst. As Managing Director, Richard more recently played an integral part in guiding Heartwood through the pandemic and the acquisition of Heartwood Collection by Alchemy Partners.

With the business set on an ambitious growth trajectory from 2024 onwards and its first “pub with rooms” site opening next month, Richard has now taken on the role of CEO having worked with Mark Derry in his role as Executive Chairman.
