Richards joined Vehicle Consulting Group as Business Consultant back in Autumn 2020, from his previous role as Global HR Talent Project Manager at GE Healthcare.

Further to this, Richards played an instrumental role in our recent rebrand and website launch, overseeing and coordinating the development.

Following the impressive and tangible improvements the business has already enjoyed since his arrival as a consultant, Richards in his new role as a strategic director will be tasked with the ongoing growth and development of the business.

His leadership will cover all commercial and operational functions of both the Vehicle Consulting and Car Leasing People brands, as well as forging new and sustaining Vehicle Consulting Group’s existing long-established relationships with manufacturers, dealers and customers alike.

With Richards spearheading the business along with Managing Director – Lee Wolstenholme, Vehicle Consulting Group enters an exciting new chapter of prosperity through 2021 and beyond.
