Richard Conyard



Richard has a background as a Chief Information Officer for a Maidstone founded, now global digital development and marketing company. In his time he created and oversaw solutions for internationally renowned brands, local and central government. Indeed some of the software he oversees today has been instrumental in the UK’s response to the COVID19 pandemic. Richard grew up in Maidstone, attended The Cornwallis, Maidstone Grammar School, and The University of Kent, and after a little time moving for work settled back in his home of Maidstone nearly 20 years ago.

Richard says: ‘After a career working at the cutting edge I want to bring some of my experience back to be able to help the community I grew up in and have lived in these last 20 years. Maidstone is facing significant challenges and I want to work with the community to ensure tomorrow is better than today.’
