He began his career as a farm vet with Rowcliffe House Vets in Crown Square and has gone on to set up his own local business providing insight and overseeing the health, welfare and productivity of animals that supply our milk, eggs, beef, lamb, pork and chicken. Through the growth of his business Rich has developed a keen interest in business in general and completed an MBA with London Business School in 2017.
Penrith Building Society helped Rich, Nicky and their five children develop their first home in Arthur Street, Penrith and more recently supported their renovation of an old farm house near Rosgill where they now live. Rich loves spending time with his family and is also a keen fell runner.
