As MD of Catalyst Connect International GmbH, Richard can lay claim to over 25 years of experience in the field of below-the-line marketing, ranging from sponsorship in motorsport through sports marketing and for the last 14 years as Managing Director of a design and build agency specialising in themed environments and exhibitions, in Southern Germany. Under his leadership and supported by high levels of repeat business from long-term clients, the company steadily expanded its international focus, enabling it to offer executional expertise in most EMEA and ASPAC markets.
Following close to 5 years of close cooperation with the management team at Catalyst Exhibits in the USA, Richard is now the front man and co-founder of Catalyst’s international arm, Catalyst Connect International GmbH, where the goal is to connect North American clients with international events around the globe.

Sharing premises with a number of specialist sister companies and connected through common ownership, Catalyst Connect is able to offer in-house expertise in virtual reality solutions, interactive presentations, digital exhibits and state-of-the-art AV know-how, ‘connect’ being one again the appropriate designation.
