Co-founder and Joint Managing Director of SimkissGuy Recruitment Ltd, Richard Guy has over 20 years’ recruitment experience, firstly with one of Birmingham’s premier office support recruitment agencies and then as an agency user. Founded in January 2013 and based in the Colmore Business District, SimkissGuy Recruitment quickly developed an outstanding reputation based on delivering an excellent, consultative service to a growing number of clients who engaged SimkissGuy to source high quality office support staff across all business functions and sectors.
In 2015, Richard approached the Colmore Bid to volunteer his time and was introduced to the Outstanding Places Working Group which he supported for 3 years before being asked to lead the Community Building Working Group in 2019 as Board Director. This Working Group is passionate about creating a sense of community in the Colmore Business District and organise an impressive and diverse programme of events and activities designed to bring people who live, work (or both) together with people they wouldn’t otherwise meet. Richard is honoured to represent this inspirational Working Group at Board level.
