Richard started Founded in January 2012 with a simple promise to our clients; by using strategy and planning as our centre of gravity, we move people. Currently Founded has 40 founders including planners, analysts, creatives, technologists, psychologists, behaviourists and general collaborators. It’s delivering on its promise for clients like P&O, Sony, HSS HIre, TXMaxx, HP, Yazoo and Hays. The Founded Trust, Richard’s brainchild, is the agency’s way of supporting social enterprise by committing 5% of its time and resources towards their charitable causes.
Over the last 20 years Richard has worked with a wide range of brands from American Express, T-Mobile, Virgin Atlantic, Xerox, Oracle and Nokia. Before setting up Founded Richard was COO at Gyro, an agency that he helped grow from 6 to 650 people in 17 countries before leaving in early 2011 with the plan to launch Founded with Richard Mabbott.
Richard is married lives in sunny Surrey with his 2 daughters. He loves Elvis, a lot.
