Richard Cosgrove is our Business Development Manager (BDM) and has been a part of the PERSAS team since early 2022.
Prior to joining our team, Richard worked as an Industrial Equipment Supplier for over five years.
During this time he learnt technical product consultation skills, allowing him to showcase ways in which products work into customers projects or applications. He also assisted with after-sales support and product training.
His day consists of liaising with our existing customers to ensure they’re receiving the highest quality service and best products to suit their business. Additionally, Richard works to find new customers who would benefit from using our products and services.
No day is the same for Richard as he gets to travel between our warehouse in Rutherford to various client sites across the Hunter Region. When visiting clients, his number one goal is to turn issues into solutions – a key phrase Richard lives by.
Since working with our team, Richard has said the team culture is a highlight. The transparency from the leadership team down to the apprentices is something he respects, and the team are always ready to do the hard work to provide the best for our clients.
When asked how he thinks the team would describe him, he said ‘the happy redhead fella who brings his wife’s baked goods as gifts.’ We think that’s a great (and an accurate) description! On the other side, he would describe us as strong, caring, and wise – the three traits of a great team.
Outside of the office, Richard enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf, and learning to fly drones. And, in a past life he used to be a DJ!
