Richard James Montgomery

Managing Director

In 1997 I really needed a job! Bob and Andrew Mitchell gave me one. From then on, I did every job in the business, cleaning, decorating, driving, routing, forklift driving, the list goes on. I worked my way from the bottom to the top. I love what we do and how we do it. The business we built is based on trust, respect and integrity. Every day we are faced with new challenges to overcome and as a team we overcome all adversity and find solutions to customers problems.

My role now covers financial planning and monitoring, vehicle acquisition, Infrastructure growth. I’m a problem-solving empath! I understand the frustrations of clients and I will do everything to help. I genuinely believe there is no such word as can’t! I work hard to constantly adapt and improve what we do, we are always a developing business.

In the next 12 months, my goal is to relaunch Mitchells after the Covid-19 pandemic with the
launch of our new websites and interactive digital marketing, and to maintain a reliable, trusted, sustainable transport business.

I spend my down-time with my wife and 5-year-old daughter. When I get time, I am slowly restoring a 1750 Georgian Farmhouse, which is taking some doing! I also enjoy playing the acoustic guitar and the piano.
