Mike Richards
Non-Executive Director

My primary role as a non-executive director is to support the Executive Team in its delivery of Locala's strategic aims of providing high quality, value for money care and support closer to home.

In addition to providing independent and impartial advice, my focus will be to constructively challenge management, critically review operational and financial performance and ensure that Locala has strong financial controls and a robust risk management system.

Following qualification as a chartered accountant with the international accountancy firm Deloitte, I've spent the last twenty-five years as a finance director for a number of major businesses, such as Fox's Biscuits and KP Nuts.

I'm currently the Group Finance Director and co-owner of Arran Isle Ltd, an international manufacturer and distributor of branded building products, headquartered in Elland. For the last three years I have also been a non-executive director of a small housing association based in Kirklees.
