Meet our CEO Alan Harty
Alan is a debt management specialist, finance expert and family man. He’s worked in finance for over 20 years, getting his start at First Direct where he received the first of his professional training. Within 3 years he was running his own team at the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Something that means a lot to Alan, is great customer service. He got his flair for this in his time at Santander and then in his position at Dell where he undertook additional training in sales, management and service.
After a few years out of finance, Alan felt that it was time to go back to doing what he was best at – offering excellent financial advice. He took up a position at Creditfix to settle himself back into the industry. Moving quickly up the ladder, he caught the attention of some other great companies. Alan was headhunted by Carrington Dean and then the Money Advice Group in Manchester where he was the Director of Debt Solutions. This made him the youngest director in the debt management industry at that time.
In 2014, after their own struggles with debt, Alan and Lindsay decided to put a big idea into action. From this, Richmond Oaks was formed. The company has become one of the biggest debt management companies in the UK. Alan and Lindsay have built the company to not only provide a solution to help those struggling to manage their debts but also offer signposts to help customers deal with managing stress and mental health issues.
