Formerly CWT’s vice president, Global Internal Communication and Culture, Richard will lead the company’s responsible business activities.
He will also continue to oversee the company’s HR communications and workplace culture initiatives while handing over global internal communication responsibilities to the company’s chief communications officer, Julian Walker.
Reporting to executive vice president and chief HR officer Laura Watterson, Richard is a member of the HR leadership team and is a key liaison with the Board of Directors’ Nominating and Environment, Social and Governance (NESG) committee.
Having joined the company in 2016, Richard was appointed VP of Global Internal Communication and Culture in January 2022.
Prior to joining CWT, Richard spent over 25 years consulting in the automotive, manufacturing, and B2B spaces with companies like Nissan Europe, Capgemini, Technip, and Cargill. In this capacity, he addressed the change and corporate communication challenges faced by multinational companies during global transformations.
On his appointment, Richard said: “I’m eager to accelerate CWT’s internal programs and external positions related to sustainability and ESG issues.”
“My primary goal will be to work with our teams to raise the level of our ESG and employee experience ratings, content, reporting, stakeholder communication and investor engagement with particular emphasis on sustainability issues.”
