Richard Crawley

CEO and Founder

As CEO and Founder of GreenTech Distribution PLC, I am proud to be leading a team of people who have helped me build successful, award-winning businesses which have delivered turnover IEO £100 million within just five years since the first company was formed. This fast growth in turnover, and also bottom line profit, has led to GreenTech Distribution PLC being named by the Sunday Times FastTrack as the #1 fastest growing privately owned business in the UK in 2015. GreenTech has also been identified by the London Stock Exchange as one of the 1000 Most Inspiring Companies in Britain, as well as being short-listed in the Best B2B Distributor Category in the Mobile Industry Awards 2015. From a different perspective, our inspiring Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme supporting young people with developing workplace skills has won formal plaudits and industry praise.

The group businesses deliver a range of distribution, fulfilment and service capabilities in the mobile products sector, alongside Environment Agency accredited reuse and recycling facilities. This combination of capability means that the group is unique in its industry for supporting customers with a range of new and used product sourcing needs, alongside recycling, regeneration and other technical solutions that together mean customers have the ability to streamline management time and resources by consolidating distribution, service and recycling suppliers into one strategic, global partner.

The birth of GreenTech as a business followed many years working within the mobile products sector, beginning in sales and leading to Board-level positions and now ownership and operation of a portfolio of business interests, spanning technology, recycling and property. As well as a keen ability to spot opportunities in mature markets, I recognise talented people and like to create pathways for their personal development within my businesses, based on a foundation of commitment, integrity, loyalty and a desire to be better.
