Client Services Team Bio’s

Working together, working for you

Richard Boland, Client Development Director

Richard started with Pareto Phone in 2020, heading up our Client Services team.

Richard has extensive experience in roles such as Direct Marketing Manager; Marketing Manager; Marketing Director; Chief Marketing Officer; Head Strategy Planning; Head Client Services; General Manager & Managing Director – both client and agency side here in Australia, and in the UK.

He has led teams who create and curate campaigns across multiple channels in hours, rather than days and weeks. Innovatively blending people and process, to get the jobs done right first time. every time.

Richard understands how to turn information into insights – and act upon them. His first job out of the Royal Navy was an Account Exec on the Safeway Stores UK loyalty programme (ABC Card). That was over 25 years ago and over those years, he very quickly learnt how to move people through to advocacy, using relationship marketing techniques.

Outside of work Richard enjoys spending time with his family and taking his dog ‘Alan’ for long walks.
