Richard (and his team) have worked with a broad range of businesses to create user-friendly, intuitive websites.
He started his career in website development in 1997 as a Webmaster (definitely in the 90s) for a leading photographic wholesaler. Then in 2000, he moved to a website development company where he was promoted from Junior Developer, to Project Manager, and finally Director. He stayed there until he founded SimpleClick in 2008.
A personal life-goal, he started SimpleClick to demystify web development. He wanted to create an agency that takes clients on a personalised journey where they feel truly involved and engaged throughout the lifespan of a project.
I co-founded SimpleClick to create an agency where the entire team feels inspired to help clients realise their online potential.
Fast-forward 10 years and four office moves later (he secretly likes a new desk!), Richard remains at the helm of SimpleClick.
He’s responsible for the day-to-day running of the agency; from business planning and accounts to HR, Sales and Marketing. He’s a busy man but gets just as excited by the creation of new functionality within SimpleClick’s bespoke CMS, Doddle, or the launch of a website for a client!
In his spare time, he loves to spend time with his daughters and is an avid follower of Formula 1. He is also a keen cyclist and along with Technical Manager, Andy Boland, he cycled from London to Paris in four days, raising an incredible £3,500 for EACH.
Richard has visited a number of countries, but India, China and Norway are firm favourites. His dream holiday involves taking an extended trip to explore Canada. He’s also always fancied visiting Japan and South Africa, although his kids aren’t quite so keen!
