About Richard Pickering

I was a Commercial Bank Manager for 25 years until 2004 and have been a Commercial Finance Broker since. 

Other business interests include Finance Directors of a fish wholesale company with associated transport company and Fish and Chip Restaurants in London, trading as Kennedys of London. In addition to directorships in property investment companies.

Key business interests that are relevant to St Katharine's are finance and property management skills in addition to the management of people. 

I have lived in Knockholt for 17 years and my two children both successfully attended St Katharine's, before moving on to local secondary schools and are both currently studying at University.
