Richard was promoted to Director of one the leading telecoms property specialists in the UK in January 2021. He was responsible for the operational management of the biggest portfolio of privately owned telecoms leases within the UK. He was also part of the company's largest client's technical team, providing advice and input on lease renewals heading to court.
As an Associate Director, Richard was responsible for managing a number of teams within the business of his former employer. He provided advice and guidance to junior surveyors within the company and was a mentor whilst they were working towards qualifying as Chartered Surveyors. He was instrumental in setting up the wayleave delivery team and growing the service charge recovery team.
Richard qualified as a Chartered Surveyor in May 2014 after completing the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Assessment of Professional Competence.
During this period he was responsible for some the key client accounts of his then employer. His responsibilities included portfolio management, valuation and wayleave delivery.
During Richard's formative years in the telecoms sector he was focussed on rent review, lease renewals, assignments and lease re-gears.
The telecommunications network operators were in the throes of consolidating their estates in this period following a series of mergers and joint ventures. T-Mobile (UK) became Everything Everywhere and merged with Orange to become the UK's biggest network. Vodafone and Telefonica formed CTIL to allow them to share one another's infrastructure and remove sites from the network. Richard was involved in the estate management work relating to these consolidations, negotiating against the network operators' specialist surveyors.
