Ricky has implemented his Business Management skills through roles worked in major companies in the FTSE 100 market.

I had paid my dues and wanted to embark on a new challenge, which is when I accepted a role to create a global application for the ever-growing luxury market, landing me the Managing Director of ‘K Club’ position. Simultaneously my passion for football grew from a young age, experiencing and understanding the high level of racism within the beautiful game and sports industry. I wanted to make a difference and felt it was time to join forces with influential members of hate crime and technology to produce an App to combat all incidences of hate. That's when the ‘Final Whistle™’ app was born. My vision for the future is seeing what is invisible to others and delivering to its full potential. Leaving a lasting impression within the industry, creating a valuable service experience and trust. I want to continue to be an asset and a man of value within my industry.”
