Extraordinary Leadership Succession Planning

At only 28 years of age, Richard J. Bryan took the reins of a 100-year-old, $120 million family-owned car and truck dealership in the UK after his father was forced to retire due to illness. The business was losing $3.5 million a year and no leadership succession plan was in place.

With help from his coach and mentor, Richard was able to clearly define his role as a leader, forge a team of trusted A-players and learn the vital art of leadership succession planning. Ultimately, the business was able to survive and then thrive in a highly competitive industry with consistent growth and profitability and the addition of six additional new car franchises.

After 10 years as CEO, he sold the car business to another UK-based dealer group and transitioned the family business into real estate investment and development.

Today, Richard is a CEO and leadership team coach, keynote speaker, and author. He uses the lessons learned from his 25 years of business ownership to work with CEOs and leaders across multiple industry sectors. He is passionate about helping leaders build cohesive, high-performing teams with predictable business growth and profitability.

Richard lives with his wife, Melissa, in Evergreen, Colorado. He regularly visits his hometown of Bristol, England, where he owns a successful commercial real estate business. Richard is a professional member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and an active member of the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO).
