Meet the team – Ed Richmond

For our third ‘Meet the team’ of 2024 we invited Ed Richmond, Regional Sales Manager, to tell us a bit more about life in and out of work. Find out more here about his role at Passivent and his love for cycling and watersports.

Name: Edward Richmond

Job title: Regional Sales Manager – East Anglia, Midlands, North and Scotland

How long have you worked for Passivent? 8 years in total but with a 2 year gap in between.

What are the key aspects of your role? Key account management for consultants and contractors in the north and overall sales responsibility for the all the regions shown above.

What do you enjoy the most about your role? I love working with customers to come up with sustainable solutions for projects.

Tell us something we don’t know about you? I love being on the water and spend quite a bit of time paddleboarding and kayaking. I have also just taken up windsurfing again after a long break! When I was younger I was also a punt chauffeur for a few years on the boats in Cambridge.

What is your favourite film or TV show and why? The Grand Tour is permanently on in my house due to my son’s obsession with it. I don’t watch a huge amount of TV.

What’s the most interesting place you have travelled to? I love cycling and have cycled through a lot of Europe. I loved Denmark for how Nordic and empty it felt and I also love Italy, especially Venice, Cinque Terre and the Alps.

Have you ever met anyone famous? I had an interesting evening with my mate in a pub sat with the actor Tom Hiddleston. I spent the whole night having no idea who he was, which he didn’t like.

I can’t get through the week without… I need coffee to start my day.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? I always wanted to be a car designer. I used to keep a ‘fire-proof’ tin to protect all my designs, ready for when I was a famous designer. I think I was a teenager before I realised that I couldn’t draw.
