"Rick was chosen to support us due to his strong business acumen and strengths in delivering business improvements, his input turned out to be invaluable. Within a very short time Rick was accepted as a trusted member of the team in Jersey and helped in leading strategic performance in delivering innovation and cost savings whilst maintaining yields and outputs.

His support to me was particularly appreciated and Rick’s easy attitude meant that we could bounce ideas off each other and make quick decisions. I would have no hesitance in recommending Rick to any business looking for assistance in developing their strategy or operations."
