In this Q&A with Richard, we’ll provide a bit more insight into the man behind the business…
Working on the business, I’m responsible for driving the company forward – and in the right direction – whilst maintaining the culture and values that we’ve created and lived by.
Prior to founding Volta Compliance, I worked in a family business. Before that, I worked in insurance. I also had a brief stint in mortgages, believe it or not.
My favourite thing is creating opportunities – for people, for businesses and for the younger generation. It’s also fantastic to watch the team embrace our culture and flourish within it. They contribute brilliant ideas and work both hard and smart. That’s why we all feel a great sense of satisfaction when we get amazing feedback from our customers.
I wanted to be an RAF fighter pilot!
The Skipton Building Society headquarters in Skipton. We carried out their electrical installation condition report, which was a huge inspection and test. The project was won from NG Baileys – not on price, but on quality of service and systems, working closely with the client to provide the highest level of customer service.
The team would hopefully describe me as fair, passionate and knowledgeable.
At the current rate of growth, in five years’ time we’ll have a team of electricians completely immersed in the customer-oriented culture that we’ve created. They’ll carry out work nationwide and challenge the industry with new technology to help us differentiate ourselves from the competition.
Our work will continue to be carried out the highest standards – and we’ll continue to protect visitors and employees from the dangers that can arise from electrical installations in the workplace.
I love spending time with my family – my wife and two boys – as well as playing guitar, going to the gym and water skiing whenever I get the chance! I’m a black belt in Kenpo Karate.
