Meet the team

Our Forward Rollers

Richard Jones

Hi I’m Richard, a Director at Forward Role where my focus is to build the executive process, service capability and wider business development of the FR Executive practice.

After finishing college I went backpacking for what was supposed to be 12 months, but only managed 10 months due to 3 weeks in Las Vegas and returned to the UK in the early 90’s. After a few years working in external sales within a B2B manufacturing environment I entered the wonderful world of IT/ technology recruitment in 1997... before online job boards, CV databases and CRM systems... and even before LinkedIn existed!!

Throughout my career I have been lucky enough to work with some truly inspirational and dynamic businesses and industry leaders and for the last decade have delivered CxO and senior management appointments and led project campaigns across the five major continents.

Outside work is taken up with a very active and busy family life and when time permits enjoy playing tennis at my local club where I am also Chairman.
