Richard Whitham

Along with my colleague Ryan I manage Vista’s products and services that are specially tailored to meet the needs of the Creative Industries.

As you can guess our clients are a diverse bunch always up to new and exciting things! I spend most of my time trying to get to know and really understand what makes our customers businesses tick, that way I can fully get to grips with the risks each business faces and provide each customer with clear and concise advice on how best to manage and avoid risks they face and in turn help them build their business for the long term.

Little known fact about me:
I started out my career as a Molecular Biologist. However, I quickly came to the realisation that I wasn’t cut out for the solitary life of a research scientist and set off to find a career were I would be rewarded for talking all day long!

Outside the office:
I love living in a vibrant city like London and I try and explore and enjoy it with my friends and family as much as I can, whether that’s going to see new bands, bars or restaurants anything really as long as its new!

My Perfect Day would be:
Watching Rochdale AFC (the mighty Dale) win away, a very rare occurrence to be savoured! Followed by going to a gig of a band I’ve never seen before.

 Most likely to say:
“Oh well there’s always next time –  as the mighty Dale fail to win again!”

My favourite saying our quote:
“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett

What makes me get up in the morning:
I love working with my clients and helping them and their businesses get over their risk and insurance hurdles. That and football.
