Richard Reed has joined us as new chief finance officer. The role had been left vacant since 2016 but, with considerable growth occurring across the business, it was vital that a CFO was appointed to ensure that the correct financial procedures and precautions are in place to lead to the business forward.
Richard’s main responsibilities will be to support the team by overseeing all the financial and reporting responsibilities. Prior to joining drp, Richard was finance director at international full-service provider PRG XL Video.
A qualified chartered accountant and over 20 years of experience, Richard has worked in industries such as retail, advertising, events and pharmaceuticals, with clients such as GSK, Nestle, Harley Davidson and Heineken.
Richard commented, “With my many years of expertise within finance it is
vital that we continue to implement and build the financial element
into drp. I’m excited for this new chapter and I look forward to being
part of drp’s continuing success.”
CEO Dale Parmenter also commented, “We
are delighted to have Richard on board to hit the ground running within
our financial department. We have seen nothing but growth over the last
year and we wanted to ensure we hired someone who had the expertise and
passion to deliver in this compelling role.”
