NSW State Manager

About Richard

Having spent 19 years as a General Manager in the event industry both in Australia and in the UK, Richard’s experience lends itself well to his role as NSW State Manager of OzHarvest. With a genuine passion for making a difference, Richard started his journey with OzHarvest as a volunteer in 2014 and feels honoured and privileged to be able to put his skills and experience to use for such an amazing organisation.

Managing a fleet of 26 vehicles in NSW, rescuing on average 350 tons of food per month from over 400 donors and delivering it to just under 400 charities, Richard is passionate and dedicated to fighting food waste and helping those in need across the country. A self-confessed king of desserts Richard can confidently say that he has never failed to put the ice cream into the cone when dishing up the occasional treat for his daughters! He’s hoping his role at OzHarvest will help develop his culinary skills further. When he’s not creating a masterpiece in the kitchen you can find him running around the Bay Run, hacking around a golf course or spending time with his family.
