“In the journey of an entrepreneur, the most important thing is self-belief and the ability to convert that belief into reality”. Mukesh Ambani.
Hi, my name is Richard, I am a results-driven, high-performance Entrepreneur with a restless, inquisitive mind; a natural drive and a demonstrated ability to inspire teams.
For more than 14 years, I have been the proud owner of Pall Mall Barbers; a barbershop with a long history of success providing hairdressing and grooming to gentlemen. As a Business front-runner I have provided strategic vision, quick delivery, and compelling and insightful initiatives; leading execution against targets and driving continuous improvements that have allowed the business to successfully scale to 6 central London, Birmingham and a flagship US barber shop based in New York.
My story in this business began at the age of 12, when I started working in a barber shop sweeping floors and making tea in my hometown. My evolution and development began, when I decided to take a qualification in barbering, winning my college’s competition in England; and heading to the national finals. By the age of 21 I started barbering in Mayfair; and by 29 I became the joyful owner of a barber store which is now called Pall Mall Barbers.
My persevering character and my desire to overcome myself have been key tools for my success, and I define myself as someone who always delivers the extra mile. I am skilled at devising and implementing high-impact initiatives that support growth, increase market share and deliver best in class customer experiences. I am also very effective at operating under uncertainty, structuring complex issues and making sound decisions within fast-paced environments.
