Our Team

Richard Woodbridge

Richard Woodbridge - Owner / Director

Richard Woodbridge is a CIMA qualified (ACMA, CGMA) accountant with 20 years experience working in a variety of industries and markets. He has worked in many institutions at senior and board level. This ranges from FTSE 100 companies right down to companies with < £5m turnover, including start ups. He has developed a clear insight into the good, the bad and the ugly of different size businesses in different markets.

As a result of these experiences Richard came to the realisation that he has a strong passion to help small businesses and ‘entrepreneurial types’ succeed in increasingly competitive markets. Watching these businesses thrive and grow in many different ways gives him great personal satisfaction.

Outside of work Richard lives in Steyning, West Sussex and is married to Debbie with three young children. He is very passionate about sport and his local community. This has led to him becoming Vice Chairman of Steyning Town Community Football Club. A very time consuming business and much more than he had bargained for!

He is also keen on outdoor life, golf, football, mountain biking, relaxing with his family and the odd night down the pub generally putting the world to rights.
