Interests in and out of work

When Richard’s not working or swotting up on the latest technology you may find him horse riding and racing – another major passion of his. 

He has a strong northern soul and tells us how he also loves scootering, dancing and having fun at all times!

I have been watching UK Connect for a long time, even working with them on a consultant basis on some more recent projects. I am very excited to be joining the team, meeting existing and new customers and helping the business to grow year on year.
