After training as an accountant, I gained experience in a number of different industries including manufacturing, building, financial and care services before joining Eagle as Finance Manager in 1997. Following our MBO in 2006, I am now Managing Director and major shareholder and my role has expanded to cover all aspects of the business. After Eagle, my life revolves around animals with a growing menagerie of rescued pets at home.
Richard graduated from Glasgow University more years ago than he cares to admit holding a degree as unsuited to a career in logistics as it is possible to be awarded. Richard’s first real job was with a courier company and he was wandered from one logistics posting to another since whilst trying to work out what we wants to do when he is older. Richard joined Eagle Couriers in 2008 as Contracts Manager. In the years preceding Eagle, Richard worked for Sainsbury’s and Scottish Citylink Coaches. As a father of three daughters Richard finds his spare time limited. That time which he does get to himself tends to see him engaged in sport in some shape or form, and he is rubbish across the board at rugby, football, golf and triathlon. Consistency in his mediocrity is Richard’s main sporting skill.
I’m an Edinburgh lad born & bred from the West side of the City.
My courier career started while at college as a part time pushbike courier in 1998. I later started working full time as a dispatch controller until I joined Eagle in 2008. I am now one of the Senior Controllers with responsibilities for the drivers and fleet on the Edinburgh & Dundee circuits. I find my role both challenging & rewarding and thrive knowing that no two days are ever alike.
Outside work I’m a very keen cyclist and ride to work all year round in all weathers. I enjoy both mountain biking & road rides achieving around 6000 miles a year which keeps me both fit and sane……A perfect way to unwind after a manic week. 🙂
