Benjamin Richardson

Senior Vice President - Head of LHi Group Los Angeles

Hey, I'm Ben, I was part of the original team that built LHi Group's presence in the US. I am now focused on leading and growing our brands on the West Coast region.

I have been with LHi Group from entry-level and worked my way up through the business. The Senior Leadership team here push career progression massively and have allowed me to move through the ranks with promotions year on year and new challenges day in day out, constantly keeping me on my toes. I learn more and more every year and the opportunity to really scale the business here on the West Coast is what makes getting up early every morning possible for me!

Something you might not know

Despite being out here in the US for a couple of years now, I am still yet to let go of my other real passion, Crystal Palace FC. I have just renewed my CPFC season ticket for another year despite the fact I am based over 5000 miles away. Luckily, I have friends that buy my ticket from me each week, but I just couldn’t give up the seat I have had for over 15 years. The majority of my Saturdays start pretty early so that I can tune into the weekly Palace games. I would challenge anyone to beat me on Palace trivia questions and am considering starting up a Crystal Palace West Coast fan club... watch this space!
