FILE: Richard Nash

Richard qualified as a chartered certified accountant back in 1997, progressing onto fellowship status (FCCA).  After starting his career within the finance department at Essex University, Richard progressed through a number of service-related industries including timber importers, freight forwarding and shipping agency, the cruise industry, and holiday travel agency.  In 2013, Richard moved himself and his family to SW Scotland to commence his current role as Finance Director and Company Secretary for a global renewable energy consultancy and service operations business.  In addition to finance, this also involves directing the business support functions for the company.

Richard’s voluntary interests have previously been successfully developing and growing a running club, progressing to chairing the county athletics association for several years.  After moving to Scotland, these running interests translated to directing local running events including the 10km run in Gatehouse of Fleet and the Half Marathon race in Kirkcudbright.

Richard was appointed to the Board of Management in March 2021.  He is Chair of the Finance and General Purpose Committee and is a member of the Remuneration Committee and Board Development Committee.
