About

OCT Associates was established by David Richards to deliver a range of human capital and talent services to organisations and individuals that prefer the flexible and personalised approach only possible from small client-centric teams.

Graduating with an MA in Engineering Science from Trinity College Oxford, David spent his early career with the Royal Engineers in a range of command and senior staff appointments. Having commanded a regiment in Germany, he left to join PA Consulting Group in a senior global HR management role.

In 1997 David joined Whitehead Mann where he spent nearly 13 years working on senior executive search and management assessment assignments across a wide range of sectors. More recently, he led Whitehead Mann’s public sector & not-for-profit practice, whilst continuing to work for a range of commercial sector clients.
