Richard Conyard



Brought up in Boughton Monchelsea and educated locally (Cornwallis, MGS, University of Kent), Richard went on to become the CIO of a global company providing marketing and technical consultancy for internationally renowned brands, and a world recognised expert in several fields, both academic and industry based. The projects that Richard has either carried out, overseen, or consulted on, will be recognisable by most residents in Maidstone be they for local companies, government or household names.

Richard was drawn to become part of the Liberal Democrats by his unapologetically Pro-European stance, strengthened from working closely with colleagues and partners across the European Union. In looking at local issues Richard said: “I firmly believe in the quote ‘It is important to do the little things.’, many issues are daunting, and whilst we should always seek to confront them, it is in the small things we all can do that chip away at them and make life better for everyone.”
