Starting his career in Scotland with a degree in Forensic Science and then working in the pharmaceutical industry, Richard quickly realised there was not enough fun or sun in his chosen country or career. On a backpacking trip to Australia, Richard worked in several telemarketing roles, funding his ongoing travels. Richard soon realised he was much better suited to a life of selling than science.
Working his way from telemarketer to a senior management position with an international sales and marketing company, Richard was responsible for managing a region that generated over $30m in annual revenue.
FMG was established in 2006 and allowed Richard to surround himself with a team of people who love talking as much as he does.

Sally joined FMG in 2015 as our first Marketing Manager. Although no one starts their marketing career dreaming of becoming a B2B Marketer, Sally loves it and has found her niche. After completing a Bachelor of Business majoring in Marketing and Management and with a career spanning industries as broad as accounting software, board games and toys, plumbing supplies and photocopiers, Sally has now found her home here at FMG.
Spending her ‘spare’ time looking after the bookwork and admin for her husband’s plumbing business and enjoying time with her family especially her little boy, Sally also loves catching up with her girlfriends over a wine (or two).
Carly started with FMG as an Admin Assistant back in the days when we had a manual paper-based system and databases were updated daily in a spreadsheet. Her OCD tendencies and attention to detail identified her as the perfect solution for bringing our accounts in-house.
Carly now manages all our accounting and compliance functions. After completing her Diploma of Accounting in 2014 (and because she was not already busy enough), Carly is now finishing her Bachelor of Business – building on her already impressive business and accounting skills.
With the FMG team growing larger, Eryn joined the team to provide support across our Accounts and Administration functions. Having already completed her Diploma of Accounting in 2014, Eryn has now given herself the challenge of completing a Bachelor of Accounting part time while supporting the FMG team helping to ensure the smooth running of the office day to day. A serious chocoholic Eryn also loves being outdoors and travelling when not working or studying (is there any time left?).
