OUR FOUNDER

MEET STEPHEN

Stephen Richardson, Founder and HR Consultant

I’ve had a rollercoaster ride over 25 years, after falling into HR by accident in 1998 during a graduate scheme. Since then, I’ve developed a passion for helping people and growing businesses and it’s taken me all over the world – London, Gibraltar, Spain and Australia – and I’ve made some lifelong friends and memories along the way. Now I’m back in my native North-East and when I’m not working, you’ll find me spending time with my family, collecting vinyl for my jukebox or booking tickets for my next gig or show.
