Our family business

The Richardson family business was founded more than 70 years ago in Oldbury, part of the Black Country and still home to the Midlands office today.

The family now operate international real estate and private equity businesses. These have been successfully run for the past 20 years by Martyn, Lee and Carl Richardson, driving economic prosperity and creating jobs. 


As an independent family business, with a track record of entrepreneurship and value creation, our current projects total in excess of £1.3billion.  They include the new West Midlands Designer Outlet that opened in April 2021 with their long-standing partner McArthurGlen, the transformational £400million Manchester First Street scheme and 30 logistical hubs across the UK, with 15 sold during 2020 and an additional 15 in the pipeline for 2021.

The family has also developed a large private equity portfolio.  Recent investments include Coople, a Swiss based technology company and Logistyx, a US based fintech business, specialising in execution software globally.
