Richard Plunkett worked for 4 years in professional practice in Plymouth before qualifying as an accountant. He moved into industry for 10 years, working for the majority of that time at Flybe, ultimately being appointed as the company's Director of Airline Finance.
Having enjoyed the advisory aspect of his roles, as poacher turned gamekeeper he returned to professional practice and worked at a senior level for one of the largest independent firms of accountants in the South West for 9 years - over 5 of which were as the firm's Corporate Finance Partner.
In October 2010, seeking a fresh challenge, accountancy firm Plunkett Yates was born, based in Exeter.
When not counting beans, Richard can occasionally be seen driving his 'toy' kit car or more regularly enjoying meandering along the amazing beaches and countryside of the South West.
