Richard Fisher becomes general manager at Britannia Leatherbarrows

Jan 29, 2016

Britannia Leatherbarrows Removals has announced the appointment of Richard Fisher as general manager. Richard will be responsible for sales, operations and HR while continuing to control the company’s European operations. 
Richard joined the Leatherbarrows team 18 years ago, at the age of 16, beginning work as a porter. “As I was only 16, I didn’t have a car so I had to cycle the three miles to the office,” said Richard. 

Richard spent 8 years travelling throughout the UK and Europe as a porter, while completing a number of courses in export and packing. After expressing an interest in progressing to management, he took up the position of assistant operator and over the next few years gained a number of industry qualifications including a National Certificate in removals and an Operator’s Licence.  

Richard has gained considerable operational experience in domestic, commercial and international removals during his time with Leatherbarrows, which puts him in an ideal position to take the company forward.
