Richard Colgan, Managing Partner
I graduated from Manchester with an Economics degree and went on to The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst for Young Officer training. I spent the next 8 years serving in the Infantry with the Royal Anglian Regiment, which included two operational tours of duty. After the Army, I spent the next 9 years’ working for Michael Page and was a joint founder of their HR recruitment business in 2000. I left to launch Oakleaf Partnership in 2005. I wanted a business that reflected not only the customers we serve, but also one that embodied my own values and I firmly believe that we have achieved that ambition.
I have run two marathons (in 1996 and 2005) raising over £7,000 for Breakthrough Breast Cancer but it’s now time to spend a bit more time playing (bad) golf. I enjoy all sports, particularly rugby, and reading military history and biographies. Free fall parachuting and motorbikes were my passion when I was younger but I have recently taken up road cycling - much safer and kinder on the knees!
