Paul Ridgers - BA Hons

I’m an Economics graduate from UWE (and part-qualified accountant) with over 25 years experience in the industry, working on major national and global clients while at Bates Dorland and DMB&B in London.

I moved to Devon over 18 years ago to help my wife run the family's Castle Drogo estate and start a family. I’ve now been with RH for 16 years, the last 9 years as Managing Director. On becoming MD, I helped develop RH’s digital media offering alongside the agency’s full offline Media Accreditation status. This created a ‘through the line’ media planning and buying service, unique at the time and still rare today.

As well as MD, I’m lead brand and account planner for the agency and am at my best when researching and developing a new selling proposition.

Outside of work I’m also a Devon District Councilor and currently chair the Scrutiny Committee. Outside of the office I enjoy a glass of wine and classic cars – but not at the same time!
