Having worked in a range of office environments from advertising agencies to a quarry, Clare has gained 20 years’ experience from various administrative and customer service roles. She enjoys assisting with the daily operations at BASE to make sure everything is running smoothly for our customers.

Richard comes to BASE Bordon Innovation Centre with a wealth of business and senior management experience gained in the technology, marketing and consulting departments of leading global companies like Credit Suisse, PriceWaterhouseCoopers and Arthur Andersen.
