As a leader and manager, Richard is dedicated to driving Lupton Fawcett's strategy.

As a marketer, Richard is particularly interested in and passionate about brand.
Richard's biggest challenge is orchestrating the contributions of the highly talented and creative group of people that together comprise Lupton Fawcett to ensure that all pull together in the same direction to deliver and grow the best possible offering and service to a quite rightly very demanding market place.

When not at work
Richard is a keen shot and an enthusiastic (if not inexpert) fly fisherman. Richard spends quieter moments cooking, reading and annoying his guitar teacher.
Richard infrequently can be found in the South West of Ireland taking the Guinness cure.
