Born in the UK, Richard’s career in yachting started at a young age, where following his university degree, he spent time living on the south coast taking his sailing and powerboat qualifications. Richard then spent a year in the South of France as a crew member on board a number of large sailing yachts, putting his operational skills into practice. Back on dry land, Richard then began his role as senior account manager at media platform, Superyachts.com where he gathered extensive industry knowledge and contacts over several years before joining IYC in March 2017 as Sales & Charter Consultant. Over the past three years with the company, Richard’s achievements have included a number of successful superyacht sales alongside bringing new yachts to the market, hosting high-profile events across the globe and forming strategic partnerships. Further, he was also instrumental in the opening of IYC’s new office in London in Mayfair – a location from which Richard hopes to establish a discerning client base, and grow the energetic in-house team.
