Since graduating university, and after a brief spell as a professional tennis player, Richard’s gained 25 years’ industrial experience.

That includes manufacturing, distribution and warehousing, sales and marketing, and procurement. 18 years of this has been spent running his own companies: four concerning engineering and fabrication in the offshore power generation and environmental industries, and one – ThinkPrime, of course – in smarter global logistics. This new opportunity is proving to be his most exciting yet.

JONATHAN HARBOTTLE
DIRECTOR

Born and raised in Newcastle, Jonathan started his working life as an apprentice toolmaker at Northern Precision Engineering.

He then took a position at Osborne Engineering in 1994, quickly moving up the company and becoming general manager in 1996. The next four years were spent working in the Middle East, specifically Iraq, Libya, Iran and Dubai. In 2000 he started Industrial Supply Specialists with Richard Oliver. After a fantastic first year they opened their second company, ISS Precision Engineering. Then, in 2008, they opened Site & Offshore Specialists to work alongside the other two companies. Their fourth company, ISS Flowthrough – which is a new concept for them – launched in 2017 and has proven very successful thus far. This brings them to ThinkPrime North: their latest venture in northern logistics, partnering with Jason Hickey and Shane Sutton. What a great opportunity and challenge… he can’t wait to get started.
